Scriptwriters wanted for Cops and Monsters

74b7b0e6-c217-4c6f-bb06-a91add0bc4fa

 

The award-winning web series is looking for writers to get involved with series two

Cops and Monsters follows the adventures of Paranormal Investigation Team Scotland as they police and protect the supernatural community. Each series is made up of six 20-minute episodes. The first series can be watched online.

Upcoming writers with a bit of experience who who would like to get involved in Cops and Monsters should send an original spec script of at least 20 pages that should match the tone of Cops and Monsters but not be set in the same universe. The series is set in Scotland but writers do not need to be based in Scotland as interviews and production meetings can be held via Skype. However, it would be appreciated if all Cops and Monsters writers could meet in Glasgow for a couple of days (tbc) for storylining sessions.

Cops and Monsters is crowd-funded. All writers involved with it will be offered payment.

Applications open on 29 May and close on 29 June.
