Published on Friday, 17th July 2015, contributed by Made In Bristol TV

A series penned and starring a group of Bristol students will have its TV debut this month when it airs on Made in Bristol TV.

‘Writers’ is a drama-comedy series set in Bristol around a group of six friends who all have varying degrees of success as writers. With key themes of friendship, love, heartache and humour throughout, the six part series will launch Tuesday 28th July with a one hour special at 8pm, followed by a weekly half hour programme every Tuesday at 8.30pm.

Previously only available on YouTube, the series will now broadcast on Sky Guide 117, Freeview channel 8 and Virgin 159.

Adam T Cottle, Executive producer of ‘Writers’, comments: “Writers started as a bit of a fun project for us as a group of friends who had a passion for filming, writing and being creative. There was a real sense of achievement when the series was first completed and made it available on YouTube but to now see it become a weekly series on TV is absolutely brilliant. We’re all extremely excited and proud.”

Chris James, Made in Bristol Station Manager adds: “A key value of the Made network is about encouraging and uncovering emerging talent. The guys behind Writers have shown they have that in droves and we’re really pleased to be able showcase the skills, creativity and talent available in Bristol on the channel.”
