Pitch. Originality of the Idea.
The sub-genre we chose for our TV drama is fantasy.
Something we were/are interested in.
We chose this because…
Because we thought it would excite viewers imaginations
Something we believe people our target audience (12 to 18 year olds) would enjoy to see.
Because fantasy programmes are more popular now.
Our idea is original.
Because it will entertain people.
Because it is appropriate for our target audience (12 to 18 year olds)
Elliot is moody, dark, tall and overpowering… He is secretly a vampire and frequently bites people… he is aggressive and scary and he is the character that kills his girlfriend Felicity – played by Bethan
Zack is a bright intelligent teenage boy; he is secretly a vampire, but a vegetarian one who doesn’t bite humans. He is dating Annie and knows it was Elliot that killed Felicity… He warns Elliot off after the attack to protect his girlfriend and their new friend Emily
Annie is Zack’s girlfriend and doesn’t know that him and Elliot are vampires... She is devastated by her best friend’s death and becomes close to Emily.
Emily is a sweet fun loving girl who is quiet and friendly… She makes friends with Annie and Zack after Felicity’s death. In our TV Drama, Emily will be shown as the ‘protoganist’ as well as Zack who in future episodes would try saving the girls constantly.
SMALL CHARACTER PARTS: -P.E. teacher
Felicity: School uniform –trousers and white shirt, yellow and black tie, and black blazer. Worn perfectly (e.g. the tie clipped on, shirt tucked in), Wearing a couple of bracelets on her wrist.

Elliot: (Scene 1) – School uniform, white shirt and black trousers, yellow tie off, wearing black jacket over the top.
Worn like this to show he is out of school times now so he doesn’t have to wear uniform as good.
