ITV Studios (ITVS) has partnered with the production teams behind BBC One drama Ralph And Katie and disabled artists group TripleC in a bid to increase representation in the drama industry.
The TripleC Disabled Artists Networking Community (DANC) is working with ITVS to launch the series of production training videos created by deaf, disabled, autistic and neurodivergent talent.
The videos, which are fully accessible, are the first of their kind and are aimed at budding technicians and creatives to learn more about drama production.
They have been created with the production team of Ralph And Katie, which was produced by ITVS and Keshet Productions, in association with Tiger Aspect Productions. The show set an industry benchmark for inclusive working at every stage.
The training videos are available to anyone wanting to learn about high-end television production and can be accessed free via TripleC’s website, available here.
They form part of the Ralph & Katie HETV Remote Trainee Programme, which was funded by BBC and ITVS, and hosted by TripleC’s Cherylee Houston, Melissa Johns and Laurence Clark. The programme offered 30 deaf, disabled, autistic and neurodivergent talent, opportunities to go behind the scenes on the 6 x 30-minute series for six months.
