Lionsgate Launches Channel Four Drama Competition at New York TV Festival
The mini-studio's joint venture with Thunderbird Films is putting $45,000 on the table for a TV script with cross-Atlantic appeal.
TORONTO - Lionsgate TV's joint venture with Thunderbird Films is putting co-production development coin up for grabs with a newly hatched Channel Four drama script competition at the New York Television Festival.
Targeting TV concepts with cross-Atlantic appeal, the Sea to Sky Entertainment venture will offer a $45,000 script development award to a drama project from the Canadian-based TV studio and Channel Four.
The competition for the drama script co-development funding will come through the NYTVF's independent pilot competition.
"There is nothing more exciting than discovering new creative voices, and the New York Television Festival has become a strong showcase of independent talent,” said Kevin Beggs, chairman of the Lionsgate Television Group, in a statement Tuesday.
The 10th New York Television Festival is set to run Oct. 20-25.
