BBC Wales Comedy department are looking for narrative comedy scripts for radio and television broadcast.
Writers are expected to be either Welsh, based in Wales or for the characters/situations to have a Welsh flavour. This does not mean they are looking for sitcoms about rugby, sheep or miners but are seeking situations that are funny and just happen to be set in Wales or that the main characters are Welsh. The overriding concern is that the scripts are funny.
The department is looking to pilot six sit-coms for BBC Radio Wales early next year with two of the best being commissioned for a series on the station. BBC Wales are also looking to develop narrative TV comedy that has the potential to go network.
Please send scripts by post to:

Room M1010, Ty Oldfield, Llandaff
Cardiff, CF5 2YQ
