Championing the best UK Film and TV scripts from the beginning…

Since 2007 The Brit List has been first to spot the world class potential in 82 scripts that went on to be produced. Together they have won 27 major awards and earned over $2 billion at the international box office.

It’s time! We are proud to announce this year’s Brit List!

“My deepest passion has always been great screenwriting. How could it not be? Without it, there is no film or TV industry!”

Alexandra Arlango

A film producer and T.V. executive with over 20+ years of industry experience, Alexandra’s credits include BAFTA and Oscar-winning film The Duchess. Alongside coordinating The Brit List, Alexandra is currently head of development at Caryn Mandabach Productions (Peaky Blinders).

“The Brit List is a fantastic badge of honour for UK writers and gives their scripts an industry seal of approval. Featured projects are immediately on the industry’s radar as ones to watch.”

Michael Kuhn

Producer: The Duchess, Florence Foster Jenkins

“The Brit List is a fantastic resource for a US-based producer to highlight quality unproduced projects from a wide range of superb British writers. We consistently find outstanding new projects to develop and exciting new writers to work with.”

Gary Levinsohn

Producer: Saving Private Ryan

How does The Brit List work? (In 3 simple steps)

How does The Brit List work?
(In 3 simple steps)

1

UK agents, production companies, distributors and financiers all nominate the unproduced drama scripts that they think deserve to be made, and the list is compiled from their submissions.

2

The list is collated by Alexandra Arlango. There is no maximum number of scripts on the list and no winner – any scripts that reach the minimum number of nominations are featured on the list.

3

Writers with scripts on the list enjoy a year-long curated programme of events and workshops designed to introduce them to – and prepare them for – the industry. Previous events include webinars with showrunners and directors as well as buyers such as Netflix and The BBC.

"Over the years it's been brilliant to get to know The Brit List writers and see them go from strength to strength. Writing can be a solitary and difficult job, and The Brit List's principal aim is to offer them both support and community."
