Film & TV Production Restart Scheme

Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

The £500 million Film and TV Production Restart Scheme is an unprecedented intervention by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, HM Treasury, other departments and bodies to restart production during the pandemic in the absence of Covid-19 insurance cover. Through excellent collaboration working openly and at pace, the Scheme was put in place within weeks and has so far provided the security of compensation to over 1000 productions, supporting 80,000 jobs. As a result, the industry has thrived; the first half of 2021 shows the highest spend on record.
