Bowker BAFTA Boost?
Did you catch the start of PhoneShop2 on C4 last Friday? If you did then you’ll know. But if you didn’t – well The Observer reckons you’ve missed out on a treat.
Britain’s ‘funniest, most over-looked comedies’? We’d say so. ‘Writer Phil Bowker deserves a BAFTA’? Well we’d definitely agree with that. Wonder if they spotted Phil produced and directed the show as well? Three BAFTA’s then?
PhoneShop3 in August. Don’t forget.
New stuff coming – from everyone!
Exciting times here at QICommercials.
Lots of new projects on the go. Where to start? Lloydy has wrapped up the “K” series of QI. Every one of the 13 shows had record attendances (which, sadly, simply means a record number of people were turned away – given the limited seating in studios). Currently being edited, the series will go to screen this Autumn. Eleven series down. Fifteen to go. (Letters in the alphabet being the guide for that claim by the way).
John is kept busy as he hosts the sixth series of Museum Of Curiosity which is recording this month. The show is more popular than ever and now has a reach of more than 2million listeners on Radio4. The new series will be broadcast from October this year. Contact Stephen if you fancy going along to a show….And John doesn’t stop – he’s on stage at the Edinburgh festival this year with his stand-up routine. More on that soon…
Bowker’s third series of PhoneShop is set to air this summer – and could go as early as August. In the meantime PS fans can get revved up with a repeat of Series 2 which kicks off on June 21st. And they’ve moved it to the main channel! So 10.35 on Friday evenings is the place to be.
And it looks as if Dominic has a new BBC drama series greenlit for the Autumn. Nothing fully confirmed yet – but it’s looking very promising.
Phil Bowker is back with us. Having had to turn about half a dozen projects down because of his commitment to PhoneShop3, we’re delighted to have him back and available for advertising projects.
The production schedule for PhoneShop3 was as gruelling as ever. The unit was still turning over on Good Friday and Easter Monday….and as writer, producer and director on the show, Phil was utterly exhausted by the end of it. But filming is complete. And the new series is being edited.
Who knows what drama will unfold in the badlands of South London’s retail sector – all will be revealed later in the year.
In the meantime….Bowker is back with us.
Baggyshorts. ‘Stuff for Screens’
The soft launch for Baggyshorts continues. And we welcome on board the charming and talented Cassidy Burcher. Cass has been filming some lovely ‘Making Of’ pieces for various ad agencies. And he’s has been making some online ads as well. A winning smile, an obvious filming talent and a friendly style makes dealing with Cassidy an absolute pleasure. He wears his Baggyshorts with pizzaz.
Baggyshorts is dedicated to making stuff for screens. Doesn’t matter whether that’s ads, virals, (that ubiquitous word) ‘content’ or just plain ‘stuff’. It’s what we’re here for. The soft launch continues…..
