The Head of Studies of TV Launch, Hungarian producer Gabor Krigler (Joyrider), comments upon the 2020 edition:

Just like everyone else, we have been forced to reconsider a lot of aspects of the program. Just a few months ago I would never have thought we’d be forced to do our crucial first encounters with all the participants and their stories in the virtual space. However, I’m a big believer in creative limitations. Some of the best episodes of serial television came from the writers being forced to think way outside of the box. Stepping out of our comfort zone can lead to amazing, unique and novel solutions. When a great story wants to be born, there’s no stopping it.” 

Gabor will also act as one of the 3 devoted group leaders, alongside with the British writer and development executive Ben Morris (Mr. Selfridge, Bancroft) and French writer and producer Cyril Tysz (SKAM France). Furthermore, the first workshop will welcome 3 guest tutors: Maggie Murphy, Ben Harris and Steve Matthews!

Congratulations to all selected projects and participants!
