- Life’s A Pitch: A neurotic, self-destructive copywriter goes to increasingly idiotic extremes to save face and keep up appearances as his work life spirals out of control.

Made by CPL Productions and Licklemor Productions with producer Antonia Miller and director: Rosie Gaunt Mathieson.
- Diane from Accounts (working title): A charity worker who has always been hardworking, dependable but ultimately invisible, makes one fateful decision that turns her life upside down. Who knew being bad could be so good! Written by Desiree Burch and Jayshree Patel (based on an idea by Burch and Grace Ofori-Attah), starring Desiree Burch. Made by CPL Productions and Licklemor Productions with producer Antonia Miller.
- Past Caring:Three very different women, Rosie, Jen and Maureen, share one similarity: they are all carers. We join these women on one of their few nights off, where they come together for some time away from their duties, which invariably involves Rosie trying, and failing, to flirt with a 'fit girl'. However, can they ever really separate themselves from being carers? Written by and starring Rosie Jones and Jen Brister. Additional cast includes Maureen Younger alongside Leslie Ash. Made by Sky Studios and Ranga Bee Productions with producer Kevin Muyolo and director Bethan Seller.
- Real Friends: Cassie and Mr Whippy have grown up together; they’ve sat in detention together, suffered puberty together, been bullied together and are soon to be unemployed together. Only snag is, one of them is real and the other is not. And now Mr Whippy, for her own survival, is fighting to remain relevant in Cassie’s life when she meets a … man. This mix of animation and live action comedy is written by and stars Rachel Stubbings and Jessica Fostekew. Additional cast includes Daniel Lawrence Taylor, Luke McQueen and Alison Spittle. Produced by Sky Studios and Ranga Bee Productions with producer Kevin Muyolo and directors: Rachel Stubbings and Ben Greene.
- Silo: Two very different Londoners, Marcus and Dipesh suddenly find themselves in rural Norfolk, the last place their missing business partner and brother-in-law’s phone was active. Drenched in urban arrogance, they find rural life to be nowhere near as idyllic and time-warped as Countryfile would have you believe. Written by Tom Neenan, Kiell Smith-Bynoe and Sunil Patel. Starring Kiell Smith-Bynoe and Sunil Patel. Additional cast includes Tom Neenan, Sarah Hadland and Mark Heap. Oroduced by Sky Studios with producer Hayley Sterling and director Phoebe Burke.
