CBC Comedy Originals Pitch Program


At Just for Laughs ComedyPRO
July 25 – 28, 2018

Just For Laughs and CBC Comedy have teamed-up to present the CBC Comedy Originals Pitch Program — an open-forum pitch for Canadian citizens and permanent residents. The CBC Comedy Originals Pitch Program offers (5) selected creator and producer teams the opportunity to pitch their original web or TV concepts to a panel of senior development executives and key creatives from CBC Comedy.

To enter, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and 18 years of age or older. You must submit your project to one or both pitch formats: From Set to Screen: TV, OTT, SVOD and More presented by Project 10, which is intended for long-form single or multi-camera series (half hour or longer), and Beyond the Box: Playing it Short, which is a short-form format aimed at digital platforms (no greater than 15 minutes). In doing so, you will automatically be entered into the CBC Comedy Originals Pitch Program.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: To be announced in 2018
