Sky One has announced Cinderella: After Ever After, a TV special that will air this Christmas and follow on from the main story of the fairytale. David Walliams is among the cast, and here’s everything you need to know…
King Bert Productions, a company that Walliams set up with Miranda Hart, is set to produce the special. The script has been written by The Dawson Brothers – a comedy team consisting of Steve Dawson, Andrew Dawson and Tim Inman, who’ve previously penned the likes of That Mitchell And Webb Look, Lee Mack’s All-Star Cast, The One Ronnie and The Jonathan Ross Show.
In the cast, David Walliams is Prince Charming, Sian Gibson is Cinderella, Sir Tom Courtenay is the King, and Celia Imrie is Madame Blackheart.
Walliams, as quoted by TV Wise, sums up the thinking behind the show thusly:
“When you read a story to a child and it ends ‘they lived happily ever after’ the child often asks what happened next? Now, for the first time in history, we will reveal what happened next for Cinderella, Prince Charming and the Wicked Stepmother. What happened, ‘After Ever After’? We have assembled a magnificent cast and crew for this one-off family comedy film. It promises to be a real treat for TV viewers this Christmas. I want to say a huge thank you to Sky for making it possible”.
Cinderella: After Ever After will air this festive season on Sky One, and we’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
