Writers Room: Writing Sitcom for Screen Location: The Hub

Creating great situation comedy is a major challenge. You need a strong, relevant and accessible idea, you have to create characters we can relate to, a story that fascinates us…and it’s got to be funny.

This session discusses where brilliant characters come from and how to create a saleable idea for a situation comedy.

And across ninety minutes, Graham Smith and Mark Robson take you through the practical stages of what is actually involved in writing a script. This includes the basics, how culture impacts on narrative and tips and tricks for pitching your projects.

So come and get the theory AND solid, practical advice!

Please note booking is not required for the Writers Room sessions.
