What we want on BBC Four
We have a small Comedy slate that we aim to use strategically to develop projects which potentially could have a long running future on BBC Two. We are looking for projects to deliver in 2015.
What we want on BBC iPlayer
Our focus for BBC iPlayer is on Comedy Feeds for BBC Three: bold, experimental long-form pilots which push the boundaries for Comedy as a genre, creatively exploit the online platform and showcase new UK talent (both on and off-screen). We commission between seven to nine pilots per year and we invite submissions once a year.
