Sitcom Script Consultation Service

We've got sitcom expert Marc Blake to offer our readers a discounted rate for his services!
We think it's vitally important that serious writers get feedback on their draft script before sending it off to producers. A consultation can help you hone that draft so that it causes excitement at the production company offices rather than lining their bins. Working with a consultant can help you unearth fresh approaches and ideas and offers a truly objective view.

We at the British Comedy Guide sadly don't have the time or expertise to provide a consultation service so we've asked leading humour consultant Marc Blake to provide our visitors with a customised Sitcom Consultancy Service at a discounted rate of just £75 per script.

  • How do I know my script is finished?
  • Are my characters and relationships defined?
  • Is my plot working? Resolved?
  • Is my sitcom funny?
  • Will my sitcom sell?

Marc Blake If you are asking these questions of your script then Marc Blake's Consultancy Service is what you need. Marc will help you work through any issues in your script so you can confidently head out to get it commissioned.

Marc Blake is a leading British script consultant as well as the author of the great 'How to be a Sitcom Writer' book. His new book 'How NOT to Write Sitcom' was published by A&C Black in 2011. You can find out more about Marc via his website www.writingsitcom.co.uk

He also runs writing workshops at Kensington and Chelsea college and one day sessions in Central London (see 'Courses' page for details).

Writers who've already sent their scripts to Marc have been very impressed with the results. We've compiled a long page of testimonials - please do read them as we think they'll convince you that this is indeed a service worth signing up for!

To find out more about Marc's Consultancy Service simply send an email to the address below. Your details will be emailed to Marc who will then get in touch with you. You are not signing up for anything by entering your details here and you can be assured that fees will always be confirmed and agreed before any report is compiled. All correspondence is naturally in strict confidence. All copyright on any material sent remains with the author.

If you opt to take up the offer, Marc will ask you to send him a hard copy of your script and post a cheque to him for £75, or agreed BACS payment. On receipt, Marc will crit your script within one calendar month.

Note: Marc has been receiving many scripts of an unsuitable length. No script editor will countenance a seventy page opus, so please keep yours to industry standard.

Marc has formed an arrangement with Talkback and the BBC whereby any really great sitcom scripts read via this consultancy service will now be forwarded on with a recommendation from himself.
