Him and Her to get new series!
From the Press Office!
BBC Three today confirmed the re-commission of Him and Her, which has become the channel's most successful ever sitcom launch. The Big Talk Production will see Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani return to their unmade bed as young lovers Steve and Becky alongside a superb ensemble cast including: Kerry Howard (Laura), Ricky Champ (Paul), Joe Wilkinson (Dan) and Camille Couduri (Shelley).
The hilarious and acutely honest series penned by Stefan Golaszewski offered a warts-and-all look at what really goes on behind the bedroom doors of today's 20-somethings, and became BBC Three's most successful sitcom launch ever.
Danny Cohen, Controller of BBC Three, says: 'Him and Her was beautifully written and brilliantly performed. It went on to become BBC Three's most successful ever sitcom launch. I'm delighted it's coming back for a second series.'
Cheryl Taylor, BBC Controller of Comedy Commissioning, added: 'We're all looking forward to the second series of this original, funny and intimately observed sitcom'.
Kenton Allen, chief executive, Big Talk Productions, says: 'The tremendous support that BBC Three has given to a lo-fi romantic comedy in which nothing much ever happens has been amazing. We are delighted that their faith has been repaid with a brilliant reaction from audience and critics alike and we can't wait to return to the tea, toast and unwashed bed linen of series 2 to enjoy the further adventures of Steve and Becky.'
The series was re-commissioned by Danny Cohen, Controller BBC Three and Cheryl Taylor, BBC Controller of Comedy Commissioning. Filming will commence in 2011 and will again be produced by Chief Executive of Big Talk Productions, Kenton Allen.
