STV pitching

22 January 2019

Location: Scott House, Edinburgh


Publishing Scotland members were invited to sign up for a pitching slot with STV producers  looking for stories to adapt into a television series.

The brief was:

  • STV are on the look-out for a returning crime series with a good USP but also interested in big emotional family stories with real heart and hooks
  • Adult drama only
  • Non-fiction titles - biographies - ordinary people doing extraordinary things or current affairs
  • The same would go for fiction - those stories about a special lead character (the heroic outsider for example)
  • Contemporary Scottish stories

The session ran from 1.30pm and a 15 minute slot was available per publisher/ agent to pitch.
