BBC Directors Scheme

Over the next year, 12 drama directors will be mentored on one of the BBC’s four flagship continuing dramas, where they will receive a full credit on one episode of their assigned programme.

The shows will all aim to hire directors within nine months for a full directorial commission if the director has shown that they can meet the standards required.

Thomas has been accepted onto the  scheme and will be directing his first episode of Eastenders in 2016.
