Samples-wise, would the first ten pages of a sitcom be suitable, or would you like something that is complete within ten pages; such as sketches, shorts, etc?

Not wanting to be a doubting Thomas, but!

Obviously Tellyjuice is a genuine company, but their email address is a .com

This is a gmail account?

The 'real' company has an info@ e-mail address.
If your interested , might be worth checking with them.
Looks like they mainly do promos, rather than content, though.

Given the likely flood of interest this will create, it wouldn't surprise me if someone at Tellyjuice had opened a gmail account for the specific purpose of not fouling up the office system with a deluge of submissions.

Yeah, it may well be completed above board, but these questions must be asked!

Hello there,

Just to elaborate a bit. TellyJuice is just starting out on the arduous road of comedy development. We have several ideas that we are working up with the intention of shooting a number of tasters this year. Right now we are concentrating on building relationships with writers to commission on case by case basis. We are more interested in the writing style than the idea itself.

And the reason I 've created a gmail account is because I wanted to keep it tidy in case we received a few more scripts that anticipated.

I hope that helps.

Hi Zoe

I think you could probably be more specific in terms of the 'style' you are looking for, and what genres of comedy you wish to try dipping your corporate toes in?

We welcome examples of sitcom, sketch, doc-spoof etc whatever you think showcases your style best.
