The Sitcom Trials first (and so far only) TV series showcased 16 brand new sitcoms over 8 weeks on ITV 1, going out live on a Friday night. Two sitcoms went head to head, the viewers at home voted for their favourite and only saw the ending of the winner. In this episode two Period Comedies compete.
Have we found the new Blackadder? The new Chelmsford 123? The new Maid Marian and Her Merry Men? You decide. (Lines are now closed. Indeed the once proud HTV Television Centre on Bath Road, Bristol where this series was made and which once had been home to such TV classics as Tales From The Unexpected and Robin Of Sherwood, is now no more, having since carved itself up and rented its offices out to various media companies.)
If you would like to create the next great period comedy, The Sitcom Trials is an opportunity for your sitcom to be seen live.
Next show March 30, Wardrobe Theatre, Bristol
