Screen Australia announces Dynamic Television Scripted Initiative

New development fund offers up to $100,000 from both Screen Australia and LA-based Dynamic Television.

Screen Australia and Los Angeles-based television powerhouse, Dynamic Television have launched the Dynamic Television Scripted Initiative which will see up to four scripted television projects receive development funding.

Dynamic Television (Drops of God, Ginny & Georgia, Savage River) is seeking to collaborate with Australia’s leading writers and producers.

The initiative will focus on serial and procedural dramas including innovative, high-concept ideas, memorable characters, and emotional narratives that target mainstream audiences.

COO of Screen Australia Grainne Brunsdon said, “This initiative represents a significant opportunity for Australian stories to captivate audiences around the world. Our collaboration with Dynamic Television underscores our commitment to nurturing local talent and amplifying the unique voice of Australian storytelling to a global audience.”

Managing Partner of Dynamic TV Dan March said, “When considering how to allocate resources and have a positive impact on Australian drama, we realised Screen Australia is the perfect partner. We are all excited to facilitate new stories from the terrifically talented writers and producers down under.”

The initiative offers an exciting opportunity for Australian creatives, with one project to be selected in each of the four rounds. Applicants are invited to propose projects with a total development budget of up to $100,000 with Screen Australia and Dynamic Television each contributing 50 per cent of the funds. Selected projects will benefit from Dynamic Television’s option for financing and distribution, under terms to be mutually agreed upon.
