Hat Trick Productions (creators of Have I Got News For You, Father Ted, Outnumbered, The Revolution Will Be Televised etc) are launching their new ‘Your voice, Your story’ initiative which aims to help emerging or underrepresented writers get their work presented to broadcasters.
They are seeking talented comedy writers from all backgrounds who are yet to work within television to send them a full comedy script. Six writers will be selected to take part in a unique workshop at Hat Trick Productions later this year. From this workshop, at least one writer will be chosen to have their work filmed for a 10-15 minute taster tape which will be pitched to broadcasters.
In their words: The type of material we are looking for will be original, funny, personal and have great potential for growth, with the project itself aiming to provide access, training and a collaborative framework for new diverse talent.

Deadline: 31 August 2017
