Josh Cole, Head of Comedy BBC Studios Production said, “Reece and Steve are two of the most extraordinarily talented and distinctive creators working today. Their gift for comic storytelling knows no bounds and we’re hugely excited to be developing new projects with them. We’re incredibly proud of the uniquely brilliant shows they have made with BBC Studios, and are delighted to build upon the long-standing relationship we have with them.”

As a large and colourful umbrella it affords us the creative freedom to develop new and exciting ideas to shape the future of international television and keeps our skin from burning on hot days. And now that it’s raining more than ever, know that we still have each other,” added Shearsmith and Pemberton.
