There is no good series without a good script! TorinoFilmLab renews its partnership with Series Mania and is thrilled to unveil the project selection for the third edition of SeriesLab
The nine selected projects will be presented in front of an audience of international TV executives during Series Mania Forum.


Part of TFL and Series Mania's talent focus, SeriesLab is guiding international scriptwriters and directors in the development of innovative and unpublished long TV series projects at an early stage of development. The programme will follow the process of creation of the series concept throughout an intensive 4-month course, under the supervision of experienced tutors.
