We’ll be happy to provide more details.

Long running drama series, with their multiple seasons, are massive, content producing powerhouses and story eating monsters. MediaXchange’s tailor made programme addresses the intense schedule and long-term story planning challenges tackled by the writers, producers and executives of leading Soaps, Drama Serials, Telenovelas and Continuing Drama Series.

Attracting and engaging audiences in the millions – whether over 5 episodes a week, 52 episodes a year, 130 episodes a season or 6 feature length episodes a year – requires a specialised creative team with a consistent and collaborative approach.

In a programme tailored to the specific interests of your key creatives, The Value of Long Running Drama, will focus on identifying and analysing the key factors for sustaining the show. Providing the writing and production team with insights into contrasting effective working practices, and with the potential for applying to their current process, as well as informing and upskilling the show’s wider team.

OPTION 1 – PROGRAMME CONTENT:

MediaXchange has designed a focused programme which addresses the creative process of these long running series formats through interactive meetings with direct counterparts in the UK. In collaboration with you, we will tailor a programme to meet the interests of your show with the purpose of bringing your creative team, and their working practices, closer together.

The key creatives from your show and production team will spend time with writers, producers and TV executives of leading UK Soaps, Serials and Continuing Drama Series to analyse and explore the writing, long term story planning and production process that is so key to enabling the success and sustainability of these returning shows.

OPTION 2 – SPECIALIST WORKSHOP:

To maximise the effectiveness of the programme, consider adding the separate, follow up option, of an intense workshop for your wider writing and creative team on writing structure, story planning and production strategies. We will select a specialist, from our extensive roster of speakers, and match them to the elements identified in the first part of the programme which you consider would be of the greatest benefit for your team to address in more specific detail.
