Scotland On Demand is a fantastic new talent development opportunity for emerging minority ethnic writers and creative producers to create a 10-minute scripted pilot for digital broadcast, supported by Sky Drama and Creative Scotland and BAFTA Scotland.

In 2017, Scotland on Demand supported three diverse, Scottish based writer and creative producer teams to develop 10-minute shooting scripts that were showcased at a rehearsed table read in September 2017 to an audience of industry, broadcasters and commissioners. Each team also received a mentor, attended a series of Masterclasses and were supported in the development of further episodes.

The Scotland On Demand 2017 Teams were:

  • Maryam Hamidi – writer
  • Rhea Lewis – producer
  • Paddy Higson – mentor
  • Lubna Kerr – writer
  • Linda Campbell – producer
  • Adrian Meade – mentor
  • Adura Onashile – writer
  • Dave Gillies – producer
  • Martin McCardie – mentor


We are currently securing funding and broadcast partners for Scotland on Demand 2019.
