At Scripted, delegates will be treated to inspirational and timely content presented in a variety of formats ranging from structured networking with the industry’s top networks, agents and distributors as well as keynotes, panel discussions and case studies, including an exploration into the creative development of the new Sky Atlantic comedy, Bliss.

Join us as we chat with Bliss creator, director and executive producer, David Cross (Arrested Development), Big Talk Productions’ Kenton Allen (Friday Night Dinner, Raised By Wo lves), Merman’s Clelia Mountford (Todd Margaret, Catastrophe), executive producer and writer Jonathan Glatzer (Better Call Saul, Bloodline) and Sky’s Head of Comedy, Jon Mountague about the creation of the Heather Graham and Stephen Mangan-starrer, premiering on Sky Atlantic early 2018. Here, we’ll explore questions to help you understand writing and producing in the UK, including the differences in writing for a U.S. versus a UK production, what you need to know about securing U.S. talent for a UK production as well as the differences in writer’s guild rules that you need to know to successfully navigate the process.

The third edition of Scripted takes place November 7-8, 2017 at the W Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. Click here to see who’s already confirmed to attend. Capacity is limited, so don’t miss out on the chance to secure your spot now.
