BBC Writersroom – open for comedy scripts on 23rd March 2020

The BBC Writersroom annual window for unsolicited comedy scripts will be open from 10am on Monday 23rd March 2020 and deactivate at 5pm on Monday 20th April 2020.

They see scripts as a calling card to show case a writer’s talent, ability, and sense of humour. They are looking for what the script tells us about the writer. They are especially looking for distinctive voices – and scripts that express those voices. They do not look for more of the same – they look for the writer’s ability to pull an audience into a world and hold them in it. Only submit to the Script Room when your script is ready, even if it means waiting for a later Script Room submission window.

At the end of the process, a group of writers (usually between 10 and 15) will be selected to join the BBC Comedy Room writer development group for 2020/21.

What to submit?

One comedy script of at least 30 full pages in length for TV, Film, Radio, Stage or Online with your personal details removed.

  • Your script should be saved as a single PDF document of no more than 10MB in size, with your name removed from the document.
How to submit?

Deadline: 5pm Monday 20th April
