Draycott & Trimm on Script Chat

Hope you've all been catching up with Sitcom Trials alumni Anne-Marie Draycott & Charity Trimm on Twitter as BAFTA Rocliffe Forum hold a Scriptchat on Sunday night (see below). Charity starred, alongside Miranda Hart, in the Sitcom Trials' first Edinburgh Fringe show (see video clip here) and Charity was in both the 1st Sitcom Trials TV series and the 2004 Edfringe run (see video clip here).

Here's the Storify feed summing up the whole discussion.

Comedy Duo Anne-Marie Draycott and Charity Trimm to guest on Euro #scriptchat on July 8th, 2012

Anne-Marie reaches for inspiration

Euro #scriptchat is delighted to be joined by comedy duo Anne-Marie Draycott and Charity Trimm on Sunday July 8th 2012. 

Anne-Marie Draycott & Charity Trimm met each other through working with Miranda Hart and discovered they shared a passion for quirky character-based comedy. They wrote and developed their own live material and hosted successful comedy residencies in London.  Draycott & Trimm steadily built-up an online community of supporters by writing, performing and producing comedy sketches and short films, winning several comedy competitions and attracting industry interest along the way (including BBC Comedy North, Monkey Productions, Baby Cow, Channel K).

In 2009 they were invited to take part in a BBC Comedy North / BBC Writers Room Writers Residency and were then commissioned to write and appear in a sketch show for BBC3, and also commissioned by Monkey Productions to write and perform sketches for BBC Online’s website, Comedy Extra. 

In August 2011 they were thrilled to win the BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy Scriptwriting Competition for their TV comedy drama PREGNANT PAUSE.  In September BAFTA showcased the script at the New York Television Festival and they took part in a Q&A with Phil Rosenthal.   Draycott & Trimm are currently developing the script, now called UNEXPECTED, with Bwark Productions.

Most recently, they have also been commissioned to write a comedy pilot for the BBC.

Come join us as we chat to Anne-Marie Draycott & Charity Trimm on Sunday 8th of July at 8pm BST.
