BBC Last Laugh competition

The BBC is launching a new writing competition, Last Laugh, where entrants will be invited to write the second half of sitcom scripts started by well known writers.

The launch programme will go out on BBC3 on 19 March, with scripts available in free books or online from 28 March.

The competition is open to all non-professional writers, defined as anyone who made less than 50% of their income from writing in the last tax year.

Comment: Do they realise that will include a lot of people who would consider themselves professional writers?! (e.g. someone who had a hit show a couple of years ago but has got their next one stuck in development).

Full details are on the Last Laugh website.
