Channel 4 - Coming Up

The Channel 4 Coming Up competition has now been opened to any writer who has not had an original drama broadcast.
Coming Up is the only talent scheme currently in the UK where new film-makers have the opportunity to make an authored drama with a guaranteed network broadcast. Now in its seventh year, IWC and Channel 4 continue their commitment to innovation, experimentation and new voices.

We will make up to eight challenging and individual films from the best emerging talent in the UK. Each film will be for a half-hour Channel 4 slot and we are looking for:

• Bold ideas
• Strong voices
• Originality
• Ambition
• Wit
• Films that push boundaries in a way that wouldn't / couldn't be done in mainstream drama
• Films that are contemporary
• Films that can be shot in 4 days on a limited budget


  1. Another advantage: your show will now be the biggest thing in C4's drama output.

  2. A helpful tip: just make sure your idea doesn't include a premium rate phone quiz.
