News: Lolly Adefope & Katy Wix Join Cast Of New BBC Comedy Ghosts

Ghosts Wins South Bank Show Sky Arts Award

Katy Wix (Anna & Katy, The Windsors, Not Going Out) and Lolly Adefope (Miracle Workers, This Time with Alan Partridge) have joined the cast of upcoming new BBC One comedy Ghosts.

The six-part sitcom is created by the lead cast of writer-performers behind the award-winning Horrible Histories and Yonderland, and feature film Bill.

Bridging horror and comedy, with an irreverent tone this troupe have made their own, Ghosts is the first BBC One project for the core team of Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond.

The crumbling country pile of Button Hall is home to numerous restless spirits who have died there over the centuries - each ghost very much a product of their time, resigned to squabbling with each other for eternity over the most inane of daily gripes. But their lives - or, rather, afterlives - are thrown into turmoil when a young urban couple - Alison and Mike (Charlotte Ritchie and Kiell Smith-Bynoe) - surprisingly inherit the peaceful derelict house and make plans to turn it into a bustling family hotel. As the ghosts attempt to oust the newcomers from their home, and Mike and Alison discover the true scale of the project they’ve taken on, fate conspires to trap both sides in an impossible house share, where every day is, literally, a matter of life and death.

Ghosts is a Monumental Television production in association with Them There. Tom Kingsley (Pls Like, Stath Lets Flats) will direct the series, and Matthew Mulot (Dead Pixels, Agatha Raisin) will produce. The creators will also serve as Executive Producers alongside Monumental's Alison Carpenter, Debra Hayward and Alison Owen.

Commissioned by Shane Allen, Controller of Comedy Commissioning and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Kate Daughton.
