Final Five Sitcom Writers Revealed

The final five unveiled

Final Five Sitcom Writers Revealed
29 October 2012

Last week, having ploughed through 2,136 scripts for our Sitcom Search competition, we whittled it down to 40.

This week, our judging panel – which includes Friday Night Dinner creator Robert Popper – has cut it to five (we know we said it would be four, but the quality meant we added one extra).

They are:

A Month Of Sundays by Daniel Hobden

Dumped by Laura Fountain

Hated by Nathan Thomas and Daniel Berg

Siblings by Martin Holmes

The Motherhood by 
Abby Wolf

Finalists will have mentoring and workshop guidance from comedy writers, which include Him & Her creator Stefan Golaszewski and Fresh Meat writer 
Jon Brown.

Later this month we’ll unveil the winner, who’ll receive a £5,000 development deal with Big Talk and Comedy Central UK.
