Announcing The Sitcom Trials 10th Anniversary Season
Have we found the new Fawlty? The new Father Ted? The new Phoenix Nights? You decide. In The Sitcom Trials.
The best new comedy writers in the country are about to compete to create the next great situation comedy in The 10th Anniversary Season of The Sitcom Trials.
Thousands will enter, only one can win. Could it be you?
Anyone can send in a sitcom script, it costs nothing to enter. The shortlisted finalists will have their sitcoms staged at London's prestigious Leicester Square Theatre this autumn, with the audience and a panel of experts from the comedy industry voting on which, if any, deserves to be seen again. After the heats and the semi finals, the best new sitcom scripts in the country will go head to head in the grand final in December.
The winner of the last season of The Sitcom Trials, From Riga To Rotherham author Dean Hardman, has subsequently been commissioned by the BBC. And over the last decade, writers and artists who've competed in The Sitcom Trials have gone on to great success on TV and radio.
So, could you be the next great sitcom writer? Now's the chance to find out. The competition is open for entries now at http://sitcomtrials.co.uk
