After an intensive selection process, ten teams have been selected to receive $50k to make three original sketches.
The sketches will appear on the creator's social media and ABC's online platforms.
I'll be taking the leap into longer-form, scripted comedy with my pitch involving a character (spoiler alert, her name is 'Annie') who takes up a job at a dysfunctional funeral home.
Up to three projects will be chosen to become a half-hour pilot, and one will have the chance to become a TV series.
The Fresh Blood initiative between ABC and Screen Australia has launched the careers of comedians such as Aunty Donna, Nina Oyama and Michael Cusack.
