Open Call – Submit a script to the BBC – 9 Nov to 7 Dec

What is the Open Call opportunity for script submissions?

Rather than accepting scripts year-round, we have distinct submission windows for scripts which are announced on the BBC Writersroom Opportunities page during the year. Each Open Call has a deadline, following which the scripts received are assessed intensively by our script readers and the BBC Writersroom team, and a shortlist drawn up. We then offer various opportunities for the shortlisted group of writers including our Drama Room and Voices development groups.

Our latest window for DRAMA and COMEDY DRAMA scripts is now closed. Everyone who sent a script should have heard the outcome (emails were sent on 7th June) and we are currently making selections for our Development Groups.

The next Open Call submission window is from Wednesday 9th November to Wednesday 7th December 2022 at noon.
