About Hot House 2024 – Stories of the Climate Transition

The Hot House development lab for scripted long form TV and feature film projects is part of Climate Spring’s writer development offering. Launched in 2022, the programme aims to stimulate a pipeline of new, engaging and commercially viable climate stories for film and TV, whilst offering industry exposure and development support to screenwriting talent.

Recognising the power of storytelling in how we see and shape our world, this year’s The Hot House development lab focuses on ‘stories of the climate transition’. This brief has been chosen to encourage the creation of hopeful stories on how humanity can navigate through this crisis collectively, offering a ‘counter-narrative’ to the dominant ‘doomsday’ narrative frequently encountered in the climate discourse.

Who tells our stories matters and we recognise that creators from diverse backgrounds have faced structural barriers to working in the screen industries and that this limits the perspectives and stories we see. We therefore particularly encourage applications from writers who have been historically marginalised by the screen industries.
