Sitcom search: the final 40

Back in August, we launched our Sitcom Search competition to award one writer or writing team a £5,000 development deal with Big Talk Productions and Comedy Central UK.
The quality and quantity of entries was ludicrously high – so high, in fact, that we had to delay this announcement by two weeks – but after reading 2,136 scripts, our judging panel has made its decision. Here are the 40 finalists. Drum roll, please…
