Krod Mandoon: new comedy starring Matt Lucas
Starting Thursday 11th June on BBC Two, the snappily-titled Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire is a co-production between British comedy producers Hat Trick (makers of HIGNFY and our very own Mark's Brilliant Blog) and the American MRC Studios. It is said to be heavily inspired by Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail, which can only be a good thing.
Sean plays the titular Krod, a freedom fighter with self-esteem issues, while Matt stars as his nemesis and arch-rival Chancellor Donold David Dongalor.
There's a great cast all round, but I'm particularly looking forward to the scenes between Dongalor and his assistant Barnabus, played by Alex Maqueen (Captain Justice in The Wrong Door).
