The BBC has announced that it is running a new talent search to discover comedy writing talent (link now offline). If you have an idea for a comedy that 'reflects modern Britain', and that will have a studio audience roaring with laughter, then you have until 21st March 2012 to submit your entry. You need to put together a 30 minute script (roughly 30 pages), together with an outline of how you see the series developing. Since it's recorded in front of a studio audience and there's talk of catchphrases, I expect they're looking for something fairly mainstream.
