Trans Comedy and BBC Writers Room team up for Trans Comedy Award

Trans Comedy and BBC Writers Room team up for Trans Comedy Award 1

On Monday the 14th of January, BBC Writers Room and Trans Comedy will open entries for the Trans Comedy Award

This Award is a talent search to encourage writers to promote a positive portrayal of transgender people in mainstream comedy, without resorting to cliche or sterotype. They are looking for original comedy sitcoms, comedy dramas or sketch shows featuring transgender characters and/or themes and written for television.

An award of up to a maximum of £5000 will be shared between the selected writer(s) in order that they may develop a pilot or taster.

The Trans Comedy Award will be judged by Ian Critchley (BBC Head of Creative Resources), Jon Plowman (Executive Producer, BBC Comedy) and Kate Rowland (BBC Creative Director of New Writing).
