S4C is hosting an online forum to discuss the challenges facing the drama sector in Wales due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the uncertainties the television industry is currently facing.
The channel invites drama producers to share experiences, air concerns, discuss expectations and offer ideas with co-producers and S4C executives.
The forum further intends to discuss how and when the sector can get back into production.
The forum will be chaired by Gethin Scourfield who is a prominent figure in the drama industry in Wales. Amanda Rees, S4C's Director of Content and Gwenllian Gravelle, S4C's Drama Commissioner will also be on hand to answer questions.
Amanda Rees said: "Drama is undoubtedly one of the genres most affected during this period.
"Unfortunately, many of the productions had no choice to postpone filming for the time being.
"However we are now seeing an opportunity to discuss and share ideas for new and creative ways of working and this forum will be an opportunity for experts in the field to come together to discuss."
Among those attending will be producers from Pobol y Cwm, Rownd a Rownd, Un Bore Mercher, Craith and 35 Diwrnod.
The forum will be held on Friday 15 May at 13.30.
