Project 10 Productions and Just For Laughs have teamed up to showcase five new program ideas presented by the comedians, writers, and sketch performers who created them. Some of the world’s most beloved shows have stemmed from comedy writers and performers with a strong story and point of view, from classic television series to current hits. In the “From Set to Screen” Pitch Program, five teams on the cutting edge of comedy have been selected to pitch their ideas to a panel of comedy experts from the most sought-after networks and streaming channels, followed by a 15-minute open question period at the end of the session.

One winner will be selected to receive one (1) free trip to the 2020 edition of the Just For Laughs Festival, including one (1) flight, a hotel room for up to three (3) nights, and a festival pass
