Four Scottish indies have each won a share of a £75,000 development pot assembled by Channel 4 and Screen Scotland.
Projects from Beezr, Firecracker Scotland, Hello Halo and Mentorn Scotland are now in development following an open application process established by C4 Glasgow head Jo Street, who also heads up daytime.
The £75,000 investment fund was initially earmarked for up to five developments and one transmittable pilot from Scotland.
“Working with Screen Scotland has enabled us to develop new projects and we have been blown away by the response from the creative industries,” said Street.
Screen Scotland head of business and market development Louise Acheson and head of unscripted Dani Carlaw will work with Street and her team on the projects.
Beezr Studios has previously showcased the Scottish stand-up scene in BBC Scotland’s The Comedy Underground.
Firecracker Scotland has also made a string of documentaries for BBC Scotland, including six-parter Mini Disco Divas and three-parter Getting Hitched, Asian Style.
Hello Halo’s output includes History’s River Hunters, BBC1’s Fashion’s Dirty Secrets: Stacey Dooley Investigates, BBC2’s Snow Cats and Me and several CBeebies shows.
Mentorn Scotland is the home of Question Time and Traffic Cops and has made shows including Corner Shop Cook Off and Bad Influencer for BBC Scotland.
