ScriptTank regular Steve Keyworth and his writing partner Mark Clompus have written a sitcom which has been chosen for the Sitcom Mission: a live competition where every week, four sitcoms compete for a £5,000 prize and a TV commission. Medicine to Follow is a comedy about the beginning of a new medical drama, loosely inspired by their experiences of working on Holby City.
It stars a top comedy cast – sketch group Men of War (Gareth Kane, Stephen Harvey, Marcus Garvey), comedian Jo Burke, plus actors Elicia Daly and John Dorney, all directed by Maggie Inchley of the Comedians Theatre Company.
Unlike the later rounds which have industry judges this show’s winner is decided by an audience vote.
