“The TV Lab was a truly inspiring experience. A powerful way of getting updated on the latest trends and various insights together with an outstanding group of talented people. The dynamic is unique, something I’ve never experienced before. Highly recommended!”
Sebastian Korteweg, Buyer Films & TV Series, RTL Nederland, The Netherlands

“The TV Lab offered an excellent opportunity to learn more about the European television landscape, and meet many talented writers and exceptional producers from across the continent. By far one of the best investments I’ve made contributing to my company’s strategy for growth.”
Borga Dorter, Producer THE WAITING ROOM, TORMENT, Gearshift Films, Canada

“The TV Lab was really inspiring and excellent for networking! Great to have both creative and business perspectives as well as the European and the US TV markets reflected. I am truly happy that I had prioritized my time to be a part it.”
Charlotte Pedersen, Co-Producer THE HUNT, Zentropa Productions, Denmark

“Attending the TV Lab was one of the most inspiring things I have done in recent years – great people and great lectures, well organised and executed. I loved it and wish I could do it again!”
Håkan Lindhé, Writer/Director THE STOCKHOLM SYNDROME, Sweden

“With the great success of Swedish drama series in recent years it becomes even more important to try to be in the forefront of what is happening globally in our branch. This program has helped me with just that: see best practices, exchange ideas with very experienced colleagues, and discuss problems and opportunities. “
Kristian Hoberstorfer, Producer REAL HUMANS (2nd season), Swedish Television Drama, SVT, Sweden

“The TV Lab was a great experience helping me to get fresh creative input both from other European countries and cultures and from overseas. It is apparent that international coproduction is more and more important and this seminar is an excellent opportunity to make new contacts and business opportunities.”
Trond Berg-Nilssen, Producer LILYHAMMER, Head of Drama TV, Norway

”The European TV Drama Series Lab is the best and most professional seminar I have ever attended in my 15 years in the business. Working with the best TV writers in the world in the writers room simulation, has been a great experience.”

Iben Gylling, Writer, Denmark

"I have been to quite a few educational events through the years, believe me, but the European TV Drama Series Lab was outstanding in every sense of the word and in every aspect of its content. “
Janne Wallin, Writer, former Head of Drama at TV4, Sweden

“Working with Criminal Minds' Simon Mirren was a mind-blowing experience. Also, I met a producer at the Lab who asked me to work on a script. We just sold the script to a network. This workshop was worth every minute!"
Richard Kropf, Headwriter DER LETZTE BULLE (THE LAST COP), Germany

“I knew that great things come from the UK and the US as far as TV-Series are concerned. The European TV Drama Series Lab managed to assemble an impressive roster of experts, authors, producers from these territories but also from Europe. And that’s what I liked even more: to discover the high level of creativity and professionalism that can be found in Scandinavia, Germany, Benelux, France, Spain and also Eastern Europe. The atmosphere was great, I found the networking with my colleagues immensely satisfying.”
Thomas Lüthi, Editor Fiction/Comedy, Swiss Radio and Television, Switzerland
