As promised in my previous post:

OK, guys and gals. So you know you can write for TV, don't you? You could give all those overpaid, underworked scribes (
ahem!) a run for their money, right?  You know you're the one Jane Tranter is looking for, but Ben Stephenson won't even listen to your pitch let alone pass on your darned script...oh, and then there's that age old Catch-22: you need your spec work to be read in order to get work, to enable you to prove you can actually do the work.

Well, I'm glad to say as long as you're over 18 years of age, live in the UK or Eire and have not had a previous writing credit for a network television programme over 15 minutes in length,  YOU CAN APPLY!

HERE is all the info you need...

It's a Bank Holiday - what else do you have planned?  Go on, I dare you.


  1. Thanks ever so much for the update!

  2. Is 'Sharps' the name of the show BBC will produce?
    Do you know if BBC is looking for a thirty-minute script of an episode of this series?
    Thank you!

  3. jj b - not a problem, you're welcome!

    Daniel - Hi there! There is no actual series called 'Sharps' - it is just the name of the competition & purely to find new talent. Hope that answers your questions!
