TV Sitcom Submissions

What we're looking for:


Stories centred around the modern family are of particular interest to us at the moment. We are still aiming for prime time evening slots, so the shows should not be made FOR families, but should be about them.

Here and Now Repeatable Stories

We're keen to receive stories that are set in the UK in the present day. Repeatable sitcoms, rather than narratives, are a high focus at the moment, to leverage multi-series commissioning opportunities.

Funny, Funny, and more Funny

It sounds obvious, but the sitcom must be funny. We love a high joke-to-page count, so don't feel you have to hold back. Think of shows like Friends, Friday Night Dinner and Father Ted. The comedy is usually in the character flaws and how these are exploited.

30 Minute Slot-Filler

Sitcoms generally sit in 30 minute slots. Accounting for ads during and between shows, that gives a 22 minute running time.

Edgy Comedy

Don't be afraid to be a little edgy with the dialogue or subject matter. There is flexibility over the type of content we can show as we are aiming for prime time evening slots.

Fully Formed

We're looking for completed scripts with a series bible. Please don't submit ideas, concepts or just a synopsis.
