BBC Cymru Wales: Find Me Funny
Deadline: Mon 15 Jan 2018
BBC Cymru Wales are looking for the next generation of comedy writers. Up to three new comedy programme pilots will be made for BBC One Wales and BBC iPlayer. The pilot that makes the biggest impact - and gets the most laughs - will go on to be commissioned as a series.

Do you love to make people laugh? Do your one-liners have people in stitches? Have you got a Welsh comedy idea that you’re bursting to write? Then BBC Cymru Wales wants to hear from you.

BBC Wales is launching a brand-new initiative to find up to three new comedy programmes for BBC One Wales and BBC iPlayer. Find Me Funny is a new comedy pilot initiative aimed at writers living or working full time in Wales, or those writers who can represent Welsh culture with authenticity, with the aim of commissioning and broadcasting the sit-coms or comedy drama pilots in 2018/19.

Budding and established writers have two months to complete their pilots, which should be at least 30 minutes long.

The deadline for submissions is 15 January 2018.
