Opportunities – Pick of the Week: BBC Writersroom: Script Room Comedy 2019

Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.

This week’s pick:  BBC Writersroom: Script Room Comedy 2019

Description: BBC Writersroom’s regular window for unsolicited scripts is open between 10am on Monday 1st April 2019 and 5pm on Monday 29th April 2019 for Comedy scripts (TV, film, radio, stage or online).

What’s so great about it? The BBC Writersroom Script Room opens its’ doors for submissions twice and year – once for comedy and once for drama. Whilst there are no promises in terms of production, the BBC uses the scheme to identify writers they might want to develop further. They usually choose around 10-15 writers to take part in the Script Room who will then have access to training and possible development. So this one is definitely worth a shot if you’re a comedy writer – you’ve got until 29 April to apply and don’t leave it until the last minute as you’ll need to fill out an application and apply through the BBC’s online portal. Good luck!
