About Pozzitive

Pozzitive Television was founded over twenty years ago to bring together the talents of Producer/Directors Geoff Posner & David Tyler. Since then, we have worked with most of the major comic talent in the UK, but we also take delight in developing and nurturing new talent from their first raw Edinburgh Show to an award-winning series.

We are constantly in development with new shows for Television, Radio and Online, so please enjoy the site, keep an eye on the news section and most of all - if you've got something funny going on, we'd love to hear from you.

Up to four scripts will be selected for development, which will include:

  • a detailed script-editing session by multi-award-winning producer/director David Tyler leading to –

  • a fully-rehearsed table read or mic'd-up performance, by a cast of actors (or your own team if it's a writer/performer-led script) and directed by David Tyler...

  • ... with a view to possible further development by Pozzitive and submission to audio broadcasters

If you have representation, you can send it via your agent if you like.

We will confirm receipt of all submissions.

What we’re looking for

A 30 minute radio pilot that would be an episode of a full series. Probably should be intended to be Episode 1, but don’t then make it so different to what might then follow that it’s unrepresentative

It can be a sitcom OR a narrative/broken comedy-with-a-premise. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept unlinked sketch shows this time out.
