Hat Trick Productions seeks comedy scripts for ‘Your Voice, Your Story’ initiative

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.

How to apply: Send full scripts to yourvoiceyourstory@hattrick.com

Deadline: 31 August 2017

  1. I checked the Hat Trick site and there’s nothing I can find about their open call for full scripts. Do you know if there’s a minimum length required for submissions for this? Are they looking for a certain age range or background for the emerging writers?

    1. Hi Ron,
      From the information we were given by the organisers, it seems they are welcoming submissions from writers of all backgrounds, with no specifications on age. They are looking for full length comedy scripts for television and the standard length for these is usually 30 minutes but if you have any queries, we’d recommend contacting Hat Trick using the email address provided.

      Very best of luck!

  2. Thanks, Kimberley. By the way, I enjoyed the workshop held by A.C. at the Bush, a couple of weeks ago. The get together afterwards was also enjoyable.
