David Csicskar, writer, TV Launch 2021 alumnus

December 09, 2021 programs

Series Launch / Project Development
The program accepts both limited or ongoing long form series. The nine selected projects go through an intensive four-module program and are built from the “bottom-up”: the training focuses on defining the series concept and theme, completing the pilot, creating season arc, season outlines, pitching documents and a financing strategy. 

Series Launch / Development Executive Training
The development process that the Series Launch projects go through is used as a platform to train three attending development executive participants, who will be trained for their future role of commissioning editors or heads of development on real, existing series projects, acquiring skills needed for developing a diverse range of projects.

The projects as well as development executive participants will be pitched within the showcase in Tallinn, Estonia at Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event

MIDPOINT Series Launch is realized with the support of the Creative Europe – MEDIA programme of the European Union.


Projects – teams of writers and producers, possibly also directors (if attached)

Aspiring Development Executives – individual participants, who may, but not necessarily have to, be connected to a broadcaster.
