Is there a way in say a .screenrc file to simulate the following commands?

(ctrl + a) + :split
(ctrl + a) + tab
(ctrl + a) + c
(ctrl + a) + tab
(ctrl + a) + :resize 10

Basically what it does is opens up screen, splits the window in half, creates a new shell in the split window and then resizes the new split to 10 lines.
