Sitcom Mission

Due to the prolonged restrictions and theatres now opening with a little uncertainty around the winter, we've had to delay our 2020 winners showcase. If things remain as they are, our 2020 winners will have their showcase as a live event in January/Feb 2022.

We hope they can then provide a little inspiration for those wanting to enter our next competition, which will be open for entries in 2022.

With an emphasis firmly on script development, Sitcom Mission is an international sitcom writing competition. We showcase 15-minute sitcom scripts in front of the British TV and radio comedy industry.

Over the last 12 years our finalists have been optioned by production companies including Hat Trick, Yellow Door and DLT Entertainment; and seen by a who's who of British comedy commissioning, including Shane Allen; Lucy Lumsden; Ben Boyer; Saskia Schuster; Myfanwy Moore; Gregor Sharp, Tilusha Ghelani; Chris Sussman; Paul Schlesinger; Iain Coyle and Tanya Qureshi.

We will work with the writers of the four short-listed scripts, in order to develop their sitcoms and present them at an industry showcase in London.
