A crucial part of our 8-month training program TV Launch is focused on the education of future commissioning editors.  

Within the TV Launch program, we train 3 attending development executive participants. They are being prepared for their future role of commissioning editors or heads of development on real, existing series projects (developed within the project part of the program), acquiring skills needed for developing a diverse range of projects. 
Development executive participants will be mentored by a wide variety of tutors, e.g. Gabor Krigler (HU), former Creative Executive at HBO Hungary (Golden Life), Maggie Murphy (US), an Executive Producer (Veronica Mars, Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope, Houdini & Doyle), Sullivan Le Postec (FR), writer and creator (Les Engagés) or Steve Matthews (UK), VP Executive Producer, Drama Development at HBO Europe (Wasteland, Golden Life, Umbre, Success, Love/Hate, The Borgias).

Together with the projects, the participants will present themselves within the Season Finale platform in Tallinn, Estonia, during Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event

Individual participants, who may, but not necessarily have to, be connected to a broadcaster.
