NBC announces national talent search for comedy writers, with network shows the prize
PASADENA, Calif. - NBC is launching a national talent search for comedy writers.
The initiative dubbed "NBC Comedy Playground" will give up to 10 finalists the chance to create pilots and a formal presentation.
NBC said Tuesday that two winners will be chosen to create half-hour comedies to air on the network in summer 2015.
NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke says the network wants to uncover original comedy minds who want an "express pass" into the TV industry.
The top two ideas will be picked by a celebrity advisory board including Eva Longoria, Sean Hayes, Mindy Kaling and Seth Meyers. Another prize, the chance to create an online comedy, will be decided by a public vote.
Application videos can be submitted online at http://www.nbccomedyplayground.com starting May 1.
