Building on the success of Newsjack, DMs Are Open provides opportunities for up-and-coming writers and performers to break into the industry, for example with a voice notes section of the show hearing directly from the public themselves. The satirical sketch show is loosely topical, reflecting online conversations and trends through a heady cocktail of comedy formats. This broader playing field is designed to attract a wide range of submissions and will reflect pop culture, hot takes and the political and social zeitgeist.
While the first series was topical, the second series follows a non-topical format and and will be recorded in front of an audience.
