Congratulations to Script Angel alumni Zia Holloway who is one of just seven writers shortlisted for the World Productions Writers’ Award 2021.
This scheme is run by World Productions (Line of Duty, Vigil) in partnership with BBC Writersroom and BBC Drama Commissioning to search for the most exciting writers with a strong connection to Wales to develop bold, original drama and comedy-drama television series for BBC network broadcast.
Zia Holloway is an alumni of the Script Angel coaching programme and was a recent student of the NFTS Screenwriting MA. Now represented by Emma Obank at Casarotto Ramsay and Associates, Zia has original series in development with The Forge, The Ink Factory, and Studio 21. Zia specialises in writing drama, magical realism and sci-fi and her characterful writing has received praise for weaving the fantastical with the recognisable to create rich worlds and authentic stories.
You can read more about the scheme and the other shortlisted writers on the BBC Writersroom blog.
