Write the Sitcom!

The best source of info about sitcoms is the sitcom entry on the tvtropes.org website.   Please feel free to spend hours looking through TV tropes. Yes, it’s that interesting.

Sitcom Terms:  Story Bible, sketch comedy, romcom, dramedy, three camera comedy (vs. the single  camera setup), cutaway, the two act sitcom.
