Between October 12th and 14th I photographed for the BBC Salford Sitcom Showcase, a theatrical presentation of six potential sitcoms, performed in front of television commissioners and a live studio audience. It took place at MediaCityUK Studios and it was brilliant, there was a proper buzz in the air and I hope it returns next year (or sooner). The sitcoms were:

Citizen Khan
Writers – Adil Ray, Anil Gupta & Richard Pinto
Executive Producer – Paul Schlesinger
BBC Comedy

Writer- Tony Sarchet
Executive Producer – Jimmy Mulville
Hat Trick Productions

Be Our Guest

BBC Comedy

At the time of writing, Citizen Khan has been picked up for production with a tentative air date of autumn 2012.

There are several articles on the showcase here (from BBC Commissioning) here (from the BBC Comedy Blog) and here (from the BBC Writers Room)

Big thank you to Rebecca Papworth, Dominique Molloy & Philippa Usher. I hope you like the photos.
