Recently we brought you an interview with Alison Bell about her pilot for ABC Comedy Showroom, now we bring the opportunity for you to win a copy of the entire ABC Comedy Showroom series, and check out all of the pilots pitched to the ABC as part of this project.
Viewers were able to vote for the show they liked the most to help influence which would be make into a series. I doubt voting will still be open when the competition ends but I’m sure it will still be entertaining to see the shows that were in the running.
ABC COMEDY SHOWROOM brings together some of Australia’s best comic talent for six new pilots, each the first episode of a brand new sitcom. ABC audiences will get to vote via ABC iview for the shows they want back as full series. A joint initiative with Screen Australia, in association with Film Victoria, Screen NSW and ScreenWest.
