I've been reading a LOT of pilot sitcom scripts recently, and there are 14 common problems. They come up time and time again. And most scripts are making three or four of these mistakes.
But I'm not just going to tell you what they are, but how to FIX them.
14 Problems with your Sitcom Script contains loads of concrete actionable advice based on 20 years as a professional comedy writer, starting with Think the Unthinkable back in 2001 on BBC Radio 4, through My Hero (BBC1), My Family (BBC1), Hut 33 (BBC Radio 4), Another Case of Milton Jones (BBC Radio 4), Miranda (BBC2/1), Bluestone 42 (BBC3/2), Citizen Khan (BBC1), Almost Never (CBBC) and Shakespeare & Hathaway (BBC1). Plus mentoring for BBC Writersroom and the National Film & Television School.
If you avoid the mistakes in this PDF, your script WILL be better.
AND you will be learning habits so that you improve as a writer.
