UKTV entertainment channel W has ordered a fourth series of chat show John Bishop: In Conversation With…
“I’m delighted we are extending W’s relationship with John for another ten conversations. John’s open and welcoming style will continue to unearth fascinating stories and personal moments with the next collection of amazing guests.” – Adam Collings, W’s channel director
The show, which concludes tonight with guest Jeremy Corbyn, is produced by Lola Entertainment and distributed by BBC Worldwide. John has been praised for his amiable approach to the intimate conversations and his interview with Jeremy Corbyn is no different.
The Leader of the Labour Party opens up for an absorbing discussion about his life and his politics, including his thoughts on Trump, the investigation into the war in Iraq, and the death of his brother.
“In Conversation With… has been a joy for me to be involved with. The team have worked hard to produce shows that allow each guest time to tell the story of their journey and how they found themselves to be sat in a chair opposite me having a conversation. I would find it impossible to pick a favourite because each show is, like each guest, unique. I’m delighted to be making a fourth series and I’m grateful that UKTV and W continue to support me and the show.” – John Bishop
John Bishop has sat down with some of the biggest names in the world of sport, music and entertainment throughout the three series including; James Corden, Lindsay Lohan, Rupert Everett, Sir Lenny Henry, Anna Friel, Steve Coogan, Ken Loach, Melanie C, Craig Charles, Professor Brian Cox and Russell Brand.
W continues to enjoy success with its UKTV Original series including recent returns of Dr Christian Will See You Now and Inside the Ambulance. The channel also recently announced brand new UKTV Original The Wave fronted by Rylan Clark-Neal and Olympic open water swimmer Keri-Anne Payne, which will air early 2018..
“John has welcomed so many incredible guests throughout the three series of In Conversation With… and I am very pleased to be able to bring it back for a fourth series. The high-value production and strong format matched with John’s intimate approach to the conversations and collaborative relationship with Lola Entertainment are what makes this UKTV Original so enjoyable.” – UKTV deputy director of commissioning, Hilary Rosen
