BBC Writersroom Comedy Writers’ Programme 2018

Delighted to be taking part in the Comedy Writers’ Programme 2018 with BBC Writersroom Scotland.

BBC Writersroom Scotland and BBC Comedy Commissioning have announced a brand new Comedy Writers’ Programme aimed at supporting Scottish / Scottish based comedy writers and the Independent sector. It follows a similar model to the successful BBC Writersroom TV Drama Writers’ Programme which partners writers and Indies together to develop TV drama projects.

The Scottish Comedy Writers’ Programme will partner a writer with a Scottish based Independent company to develop and write a pilot episode script for an original comedy series for BBC One, BBC Two or BBC Three Online through a fully funded script commission by BBC Comedy and BBC Writersroom. This is also about supporting the indie sector in a tangible way while working alongside comedy commissioning.

Over a period of 6 months to a year, the writers will work alongside an Independent Production Company to develop their idea while attending various workshops to enhance their writing and knowledge of TV comedy through the BBC Writersroom team.
