Continuing Drama series constitute some of the most popular, talked about and accessible drama on British television. Eastenders, Coronation Street, Hollyoaks, Holby City all reach audiences of millions of viewers each week. With hundreds of hours produced annually, working on a continuing drama is hugely collaborative and often the training ground for top TV talent. In this session, a writer, a script editor and an executive producer will dismantle the process of writing on these long-running and much-loved programmes.
With writer Jeff Povey (credits include over 150 episodes of Eastenders), script editor Sophia Rashid (Eastenders and Holby City), and Stuart Blackburn, Series Producer at ITV Studios (Coronation Street and Emmerdale), chaired by Anne Edyvean.
