Buzz, Film, Interviews, TV

The booming production schedule in television drama saw a record £2.6 million paid in contributions to the High-end TV Levy Fund last year, Creative Skillset announced today.

More than 100 high-end productions including Game of Thrones, Poldark, Luther, Derry Girls, The Durrells, Black Mirror, Shetland, Call the Midwife and Peaky Blinders, made the payments into the High-end Levy TV Fund.

This supports skills and training courses including Trainee Finder, the entry-level TV drama placement programme, and Make a Move, which offers on-the-job training for crew identified by productions as ready to move into a more senior role. More than 1,000 people benefited from levy-supported training last year.
