Screen Training Ireland, in association with Galway Film Centre, are hosting a talk ‘How to Create Innovative TV Series’ with Gub Neal. Gub (Creative Producer on THE FALL), will outline the key factors necessary for great TV Drama, as well as giving an insight into how TV Drama is produced in Europe. It will be a combination of how to cultivate and nurture the creative writing process as well as an insight into the new options for getting TV made.
