As co-producer of The Sitcom Mission, I read over 3500 sitcom scripts and gave feedback on over 500 of them. I know that my feedback adds value and can improve your chances of success in writing competitons such as BBC Writers Room, BAFTA Rocliffe or The Sitcom Mission.

“Declan is not only incredibly knowledgeable about the art of crafting and shaping sitcoms, he’s also a genuinely nice bloke. We met him at the start of our TV writing careers, and entering his Sitcom Mission was one of the major stepping stones in allowing us to break into the industry – not just because of his advice, but because of his ability to charm major industry figures into paying attention. What we appreciated most was that Declan wasn’t interested in saying ‘this is the right way to do this’, but instead worked with us to hone our work to our own satisfaction.”

“Declan Hill knows the laws of sitcoms inside out. The best kind of notes you can ask for are ones that make you think and not just tell you that you are wrong. And Declan does that with ease, honesty and precision. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the genre, which is essential in trying to assess a script’s target audience. Why your characters, structure, story and jokes work, or not. Following Declan’s notes will help your writing and script no end.”
Chris Aitken – Short Com
“I have been working with Declan over the last four months developing a sitcom script and overarching story. He has provided proof reading and writing advisory services relating to format and plot.
My experience working with Declan has been outstanding, and my work has greatly benefited from his years of industry experience and natural flair for efficient yet expressive plot structure. As a new writer, I have also found him very approachable, easy to contact and quick to respond which has really helped as I start my journey into the industry.
I can highly recommend him to anyone looking for script review/proof reading services and hope to continue working with him on my current project as well as on future ones.
Listen to his critique, accept it, make the necessary changes and you’ll improve, it’s as simple as that.
I actually won a competition with my script after his critique, and I’ve only been writing for a year!”
