Samson Kayo and Phil Bowker’s pizza delivery comedy show will be back for a second season…
UKTV and Dave have ordered another run of Samson Kayo and Phil Bowker’s pizza delivery series Sliced, doubling the number of episodes from 3 to 6 this time around. The first season averaged 1.7 million viewers for Dave, ensuring that London boys Joshua and Ricky would be back on track to answer the calls of more hungry customers, and deal with the relentless mess of their daily lives.
“We go again! I’m so excited to be back on Dave with series two. Last series was just a taster, now it’s go time!”, said Kayo. “I’m looking forward to creating some more explosively funny and authentic stories with this amazingly talented team.”
“Launching Sliced was one of our favourite moments of 2019, we loved working with the brilliant and talented Samson Kayo and Phil Bowker”, Dave Channel Director Luke Hales said in a statement. “The fact that the show is loosely based on Samson’s upbringing in South London makes it really modern, authentic and relatable, and the fact that it is co-written by him means it is guaranteed to be very, very funny. Dave is committed to UK comedy and in recent years has established itself as the best place to come in the UK for fresh, modern and brilliantly funny comedy, Sliced speaks loudly to this ambition.”
UKTV’s Head of Scripted Pete Thornton added: “Samson and Phil make for a formidable creative duo, the Batman and Robin of the writer/performer/just writer comedy world, and they are supported by an extraordinary cast of established talent and rising stars. This is a show that really hits the sweet spot for Dave, we love it with a passion and we can’t wait to make more.”
