News: The Goes Wrong Show To Go Rong Again

The Goes Wrong Show is to return for a second series.

The Goes Wrong Show is a comedy series from the team behind The Play That Goes Wrong. Series one of the Mischief Screen and Big Talk show saw the Cornley Drama Society perform a number of disastrous half-hour playlets, ranging from horror to period romance, via legal drama and wartime thriller. The second series will again be written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields and sees them star alongside the returning cast from series one; Nancy Zamit, Charlie Russell, Bryony Corrigan, Greg Tannahill, Dave Hearn and Chris Leask.

As well as viewers watching on BBC One, both series have attracted over 2 million views each to date on BBC iPlayer.

Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning said: “These two shows are jam packed with colourful characters and family friendly jokes which embody the BBC’s unique commitment to cross generational comedy starring UK talent at the heart of them. The iPlayer figures have transformed comedy’s fortunes as the very healthy uplift in consolidated viewing and young audiences brings renewed faith in a genre where shows continue to be increasingly popular and discovered by new audiences over the months and years and even decades that follow.”

Chris Bean, Director of the Cornley Drama Society said, “We are delighted, if not a little surprised to have been commissioned to create a second series of The Goes Wrong Show. It’s no secret that we hit a few snags during production of the first series, but these snags were almost all caused by poor communication. To remedy that for the second series we are issuing all employees with five telephones.”

Transmission details will be confirmed in due course.
