Scottish Screen will also promote the dramas for theatrical release within Scotland.
Each finalist will receive a budget of£45,000 to shoot the programmes on digital format and Scottish Screen will help any applicant not attached to a production company to find a crew. The winning six will also get the opportunity to take part in a training programme run by Scottish Screen Training.
The initiative, called New Found Land, is open to individual writers and those working within Scottish broadcasting organisations, provided they have never had a TV drama commission. The deadline for applications is 25 June.
