Comedy News

The 22nd Annual American Black Film Festival, (ABFF) taking place in Miami, Florida June 13-19, 2018, is thrilled to announce a new talent pipeline program, in partnership with truTV: the ABFF®truTV Comedy Writers Competition.

The first-ever ABFF® truTV Comedy Competition is searching for the next generation of comedic voices and will provide a unique opportunity for a content creator to develop a project with truTV. Each competitor will be required to submit a paper-developed half-hour comedic format (1-2 page document), consisting of a logline of the show premise, the type of format, the talent leading the show and the show overview. truTV is a comedy network, so it’s all about leaning into the comedy first.  For inspiration, submitters are encouraged to research existing truTV original programming formats, including Impractical JokersComedy KnockoutHack My Life and Laff Mobb’s Laff Tracks.
