Indielab opens TV Accelerator applications for 2023 scheme

Indielab’s TV Accelerator cohort of 2022

UK-based Indielab is opening its annual TV Accelerator programme and is again looking for scripted and unscripted British indies looking to capitalise on domestic and international opportunities.

The organisation has now opened applications for the eighth iteration of its programme, with a deadline of 31 March.

The 15 successful applicants to the programme will be announced in early April, ahead of the programme’s launch on 9 May.

Victoria Powell, CEO of Indielab,, said: “It’s an incredibly competitive market out there and being creatively distinctive on a global stage, as well as commercially incredibly savvy, is vital now. Access to insight, support and connections to capitalise on this environment and build a stable, successful production business has never been more valuable.”

The Accelerator scheme aims to supercharge indie growth, connecting companies with a network of partners and industry leaders in the screen sector.

The 2023 Indielab programme is funded by companies including the BBC’s Small Indie Fund, Channel4 and Creative Scotland, alongside international distributor Banijay Rights, Sony Pictures TV, Harbottle & Lewis LLP, Ecovis Wingrave Yeats and Nyman Lisbon Paul.

To be eligible, indies must be founded and registered in the UK, with less than £6m in revenue in non-scripted. In order to support the burgeoning scripted sector as well as non-scripted, the cap on turnover has now been lifted to £10m if the company can demonstrate some scripted production.

Participating indies must also have had at least two broadcast credits within the last two years or, if a start-up, the founder must have three credits as a producer, series producer or EP within the past three years. For more requirements & details, click here.
