TV Fiction Experts

The EBU Fiction Experts Group consists of the heads of drama, drama commissioners and other profiles such as editors and producers working in the field, all representing EBU Members.

At the annual meeting, the Fiction Plenary, these representatives get together to exchange new ideas, discuss the latest trends in drama, and share experiences, successes or failures.

The Fiction Bureau, which steers the groups' activities, meets 3-4 times a year in order to define the Group's strategy.
