Got a genius idea you think could make a great TV show?
Want to know the secret to developing it further and actually getting it on telly?
RTS Futures has teamed up with the creators of the hit UKTV comedy game show Taskmaster to bring you the ultimate masterclass in bringing ideas to eyeballs.
Sharing what it takes to go from initial concept to fully fledged, successful commission will be:
Alex Horne – Comedian, co-host, Executive Producer and creator of Taskmaster.
Andy Cartwright - Series Producer, Avalon
Andy Devonshire - Executive Producer and Series Director, Avalon
Hilary Rosen - Deputy Director of Commissioning, UKTV
This dream team will reveal how Taskmaster went from an original idea Alex had during the Edinburgh Fringe to becoming one of the UK's most loved game shows, currently five series in, BAFTA and Emmy award nominated and now due to hit international audiences with its first US series currently in production.
This event, which will take place in central London, is a fantastic opportunity to get an insight into how ideas are developed and commissioned, ask the panel any burning questions you have and also get the chance to take part in a hilarious live Taskmaster challenge presented by Alex himself! It’s not to be missed…
