Comedy script reaches 'Find Me Funny' final

Fflur’s first comedy script ‘The Other Team’, co-written by Huw Davies, has reached the final of Find Me Funny – an opportunity from BBC Cymru Wales to discover the next generation of comedy writers. This scheme will result in up to three new comedy pilots being chosen for BBC One Wales and BBC iPlayer. Just under 350 submissions were received, and eight scripts were chosen and are now being considered by a judging panel, with Fflur’s sitcom ‘The Other Team’ being one of them.

In ‘The Other Team’, set in Trecorryn – a fictionalised version of Newcastle Emlyn – recovering alcoholic Fiona finds love with fellow rugby widow Cerys, but they struggle to break the news to their rugby-obsessed husbands. Fflur’s BAFTA Cymru nominated series Parch also returns to the screen this week, (Sunday, March 4th at 9pm) on S4C and the BBC iPlayer, and she is currently writing the 4th series of BAFTA Cymru winning series 35 Diwrnod, which will air on S4C and the BBC iPlayer in November 2018.
