Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio has recorded a free series of short videos, “Between the Lines,” to complement his BBC Maestro scriptwriting course.

Mercurio currently offers scriptwriting course Writing Drama for Television with e-learning platform BBC Maestro.

To coincide with the new season of Line of Duty, Mercurio each week explores a notable scriptwriting technique from the latest episode, in a 1-2 minute video with accompanying notes on BBC Maestro, that offers both Line of Duty fans and budding scriptwriters an insight into the craft.

“This is a great opportunity for fans of the series and aspiring writers to see Jed reveal some of his writing secrets behind the new series, as it unfolds. We hope it is an enjoyable insight into the creative processes behind this acclaimed BBC programme,” John Yorke, Founder and Head of BBC Writer’s Academy.

The first video is available to view now, following the broadcast of the first episode of Line of Duty. Further videos will be released at 10pm every Sunday to coincide with the broadcast of each new episode.

The content series is free to view on a special BBC Maestro “Between the Lines” webpage and BBC Maestro’s social channels.

BBC Maestro, which operates in partnership with BBC Studios (the commercial arm of the BBC) offers a series of creative arts courses.
