This event will reveal for the first time the story behind the stories: how plot lines are created, how characters are developed and how teams of writers, producers, directors and designers put together more than 600 episodes of drama every year; mini dramas that have become the mainstay of the ITV schedule.

The high turnover of shows, together with their impact, means that Coronation Street has become the richest training ground for budding writers, directors, designers and producers in the industry.

This event will take you behind the scenes as the panel deconstruct one episode, to illustrate the extraordinary journey it takes from the 'writers room' to screen; a journey that will take nearly a year. It is an absorbing narrative that will be told by those in the front line.

 

Panel:

Stuart Blackburn, Producer Coronation Street

Debbie Oates, Writer Coronation Street

Tina O’Brien, the actress who plays Sarah-Louise Platt on Coronation Street

John Whiston, Managing Director, Continuing Drama, ITV

Chair: Paul Jackson
