Tilt on the BBC

31st March 2008

The BBC is looking for topical material with a twist for its new sketch show called Tilt, which will be broadcast weekly on BBC7.

The people behind Tilt want to make a show that is playful and witty, and are looking for sketches that go beyond obvious topical satire.

The big stories of the week will be told in running sketches written by the core team. Around that they’re looking for standalone topical sketches, headlines, monologues, spoof ads, spoof trailers, news parodies… Tilt isn’t a spoof news programme, but it’s hard to poke fun at all things topical without turning an eye to the ways in which we receive news. And for that matter, sport, weather, or celebrity gossip.

The cast is three male, three female. There’s no presenter, and it’s being linked by bits of realistic sounding news that’s made up, or bits of real news that they’ve monkeyed around with.

In particular they’re looking for one liners in the shape of headlines (real or fictional, but funny in either case), and standalone topical sketches.

Make sure you submit your sketches in radio script format, and send only your very best sketches – no more than three in any one week. Make sure that those three sketches have been written, edited, rewritten, honed, and polished until you are convinced that they are as good as they can possibly be.

All material should be submitted to their email address listed on the website.
