Dancing Ledge Productions (DLP), which launched three months ago with backing from FremantleMedia and a development deal with Martin Freeman, has kicked off the U.K.’s first TV production company Writer in Residence program. It is currently developing projects for the BBC, Channel 4, A&E, UKTV, and Film 4. The selected writer will be given a stipend of £6,000 and a desk, computer and phone in the company. They will be invited to attend in-house development meetings, read scripts in development and given access to writers the company is currently working with. The writer will be asked to develop a first episode script for a long running series which DLP will have a first-look to option. First time writer and director Caroline Bartleet has won the inaugural award.
