BBC Comedy and BBC Three have commissioned two new Comedy Slices, a brand new Comedy Threesome, and recommissioned Ladhood for a third series.
“Backing new talent and giving a platform to new comedy voices has always been key for BBC Three.” – Fiona Campbell, Controller of BBC Three
In the first of two Comedy Slices, Mawaan Rizwan has written and stars in comedy pilot Juice. Mawaan plays Jamma, who desperately wants to be the centre of attention, but his family is constantly stealing his thunder. A second Comedy Slice, such brave girls, comes from writer-performer Kat Sadler and the producers of This Country. This comedy pilot explores family, life and love in all its ugly chaos.
Peck’Eds is a brand new Comedy Threesome, written by and starring newcomer Soph Galustian. It is a female-led coming of age, out-and-out comedy about the testing moments of growing up as a young, working-class woman in South Manchester.
Finally, Ladhood, Liam Williams’ critically acclaimed comedy, has been commissioned for a third series.
“Mawaan, Kat, Soph and Liam are some of the finest comedy storytellers around and we feel incredibly fortunate that we get to work with them and showcase their creations. From family dilemmas through to adulthood predicaments, each show has a unique voice at the heart, telling relevant stories that we know our audience is going to love.” – Fiona Campbell, Controller of BBC Three
