BBC plans producers' academy

An academy aimed at training up and coming producers to work across the BBC’s slate of drama series is being developed by the corporation in a bid to bring fresh talent into the industry.

The academy would sit alongside the BBC’s existing ones for writers and directors, which give new talent the chance to work on returning series such as Holby City, EastEnders, Casualty and Doctors.

BBC controller of drama production John Yorke, who is the brains behind the existing academies, said the idea was in its early stages.
