  • John Cleese to return to the BBC!

    The BBC announced today that BBC Comedy have commissioned "Edith", a six part comedy series by Oscar-nominated writer Charles McKeown, co-author of Terry Gilliam's "Brazil" & subsequent films, and featuring a stellar cast led by Alison Steadman, John Cleese and Jason Watkins.

    John Cleese says: “These are the most enjoyable scripts I've been sent in the last 100 years. It will also be particularly nice to work with Alison again since we joined forces in Clockwise all that time ago.”

    Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning says: “If you had carte blanche on your fantasy BBC One comedy cast then you’d not be far off the Edith line-up. It’s also a huge pleasure to welcome John Cleese back to the land of BBC sitcom - his last one did alright. This is the cream of British talent giving the BBC One audience the very best comedy on television.”
