ITV have recommissioned Sorry, I Didn’t Know, the comedy panel show about Black history.
Jimmy Akingbola will return to host the new series which will air in October on ITV as part of ITV’s Black History Month celebrations. Chizzy Akudolu and Judi Love will also be back as the team leaders.
Last year’s series welcomed guests including Colin Salmon, Angie Le Mar, Tom Allen and Russell Kane, and in partnership with Dandi.org.uk, hired a fully inclusive team behind the camera as well. .
“We’re very excited to have SIDK return for a second series. After last year’s successful debut, we’ve expanded the show to 5 episodes and can’t wait to welcome new writers onto the team.”
-Joe Mace, ITV Commissioning Editor, Entertainment
ITV jumped into action following the Black Lives Matter movement to bring more coverage and programming for the UK’s black community, having ignored virtually Black History Month in all the years prior to the BLM global protests and awareness drives launched following the death of George Floyd in America last year.
