News: Saturday Night Primetime Show For Mrs Brown

Sitcom star Mrs Brown is to host a brand new Saturday night TV show, All Round to Mrs Brown’s.

The hugely popular Mrs Brown’s Boys cemented its status as the nation’s favourite sitcom last July, with its live episode airing on a Saturday night reaching over 11 million viewers and winning the Radio Times Most Popular 21st Century Sitcom poll. Now BBC Entertainment and BBC One have commissioned a new Saturday night series with Agnes Brown and all the Mrs Brown’s Boys favourites.

Agnes is about to open the door of her very familiar family home, as mammy makes mischief with celebrity guests, surprise audience shenanigans and outrageous stunts, all in front of a live studio audience… what could possibly go wrong?!

Mrs Brown’s Boys creator, writer and star Brendan O’Carroll says: "The entire cast is excited by this. I think Agnes may be worried that she'll need a bigger kettle to make tea for everyone that's coming round!"

All Round to Mrs Brown's is to be produced by Hungry Bear Media in conjunction with O’Carroll’s production company BocPix. It was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director, BBC Content; Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning; and Alan Tyler, Commissioning Editor, BBC Entertainment.

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content says: “Bringing one of our biggest comedy stars Mrs Brown to Saturday nights in 2017 with a new entertainment show is going to be full of fun and mischief and totally unpredictable, I can’t wait!”

Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning says: "We all agree it's high time some of our bravest celebrities experienced a slice of the world according to Agnes and I can't think of a finer or funnier format to do this in.”

Brendan added: "I have been waiting some time to work with Dan Baldwin and Hungry Bear. It is so exciting now to team up for this. Similarly one of the things that everyone at BocPix enjoys about working with the BBC is that we are always given the encouragement to explore new ideas - like we did with the live episode of Mrs. Browns Boys in July.”

The BBC is already doing well in terms of Saturday nigh comedy with Michael McIntyre's Big Show already being a hit on Satirday nights.

All Round to Mrs Brown's will be broadcast later this year.
