MPs want your input into an inquiry that seeks to address the challenges facing high-end film and TV.

The DCMS committee is calling for written responses by 19 September on issues such as ensuring a skills pipeline and retaining staff, addressing inclusivity and diversity; and the risks and benefits of AI.

Above all, it wants to find ways to continue encouraging international investment in UK production, looking at how to ensure established funding routes, tax credits and governance are fit for purpose and are preparing high-end TV for the future.

The inquiry comes amid a commissioning slowdown and the issues raised by the writers and actors strikes in the US, which in turn are slowing the pipeline of productions from overseas.

Committee chair Caroline Dinenage said: “The actors and writers strikes in the United States show the importance of getting ahead of the game in adapting skills and responding to the challenges of artificial intelligence. 

“The challenge now is to make sure the industry and government are thinking of the future to maintain and enhance an industry that is hugely important both to the economy and to the culture of the UK and its power on the world stage.”
