5 Acts Productions, the ITV Studios scripted label led by David P. Davis, has launched a brand new Writers in Residence for unrepresented writers entering the industry.
Bristol-based Michael Jenkins and Cardiff-based Tina Pasotra are the first to join Davis. Together they will develop two original ideas over the next two years. The residency has received support and funding through ITV’s Diversity Commissioning Development Fund. In March this year, ITV announced plans to reserve £80m of its content commissioning budget over the next three years to drive change towards racial equity and disability equity.
