Pitch your sitcom

Attention budding sitcom writers!

Come along to our event celebrating The Revival Of The Audience Sitcom, and you can pitch your beautifully honed ideas to the biggest gathering of influential people you'll ever see in one room.

BBC Comedy Controller Lucy Lumsden and legendary sitcom producer Beryl Vertue OBE are among the panellists who'll be talking about the continued success of the audience sitcom, in the face of numerous pronouncements of its demise. The event, to be held at the Writers' Guild Centre on Tuesday 12 February at 7pm, will celebrate the growing new audiences for shows like Not Going Out and The IT Crowd, and look at how sitcoms will be developed in the future.

After the discussion you can pitch your ideas to the panel that includes Vertue (producer Coupling, Men Behaving Badly etc) Charlie Hanson (producer of Not Going Out and Extras) and writer-producers James Hendrie and Ian Brown (My Family, After You've Gone). The event will be chaired by comedian and writer Dave Cohen.

The Writers Guild Centre is at 15 Britannia Street, London W1X 9JN, two minutes from Kings Cross tube. Tickets are £10, £5 to members of the Writers' Guild. Further information contact or call 0207 833 0777.
