More news on the Sitcom Trials judging panels. I can confirm that the first night, Oct 19, will be judged by Katie Tyrell (BBC producer of shows from Clare In The Community to the Now Show), David Quantick (Blaggers Guide, TV Burp) and David Schneider (I'm Alan Partridge, The Day Today).
Judges for other nights include Bill Dare (producer from Mary Whitehouse Experience to I've Never Seen Star Wars), Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf), Iain Morris (Inbetweeners), Tom Price (comedian and you'll know him from Torchwood), John Finnemore (Cabin Pressure), Suzanne Gilfillan (prod Mock The Week), Kenton Allen (prod from Royle Family to Ideal), with more coming on board daily.
James looks likely to be able to tell you the line ups imminently. He's doing a cracking job against a very tight deadline, getting the directors wrangled and the casting together for 5 sitcoms a night starting in two Mondays time, so I hope we'll all be turning out to see the fruits of his endeavours.
See you there
