This does look interesting. They say 'think high budget' which has to be a first in comedy. I'd be interested to know if anyone has given this a try.

I've had a quick look at the site but I can't see a deadline date? Am I being thick? (Yes I know!)

I could not see a date either. Perhaps it is open ended? Things I've been reading suggest that Amazon and Netflix have quite a bit of cash to splash for making new programmes, and of course they both already have the infrastructure in place to sell them to a growing audience.

Interestingly, tucked away in the T&C's is the option to make your script public for peer review.
Whilst some might get a bit squeamish about plagiarism (rare) others might fancy the idea of a bit of feedback.

I genuinely don't get this - it says they try to evaluate within 90 days....
Do you think they're even reading the stuff?
Just rejecting certain things without even reading?
Or is no-one sending stuff and they're pouncing on things the second they come in the door?
What did you send?

A shitcom pisspilot. I got a presumably automated reply and then a 'doesn't fit our requitements.' They said I could rewank it,but the words 'polish' and 'turd' sprang to mind.
