In drama, Nelson’s biggest project is E20, the online spin-off being created around EastEnders. “That’s completely different to comedy, where instead we’re taking a TV brand into a new environment with new characters, and investing in young writers and actors to develop the talent base of EastEnders,” he says. He hopes the new online storylines will mean the online drama can be enjoyed in its own right or together with the established BBC 1 soap. A lot will depend on how people choose to interact with the developing drama online.
