A few more details about ‘Bring it On’ have emerged. The show will apparently be a panel show of sorts with Hugh Dennis, Tom Allen and Angela Barnes being the guests for the pilot episode which will be trialled at The Leicester Square Theatre on the 25th July. Tickets are available here if you want to come along:
On a side note tickets are also available for WILTY? on there so get applying Mitchell fans!
Every audience member must bring an object. SRO’s press release says:
‘Showcasing everything from regrettable impulse buys to embarrassing family photos, inappropriate gifts to toe curling teenage love letters or even baffling family heirlooms to hideous items of clothing, the format combines the curiosity of the Antiques Roadshow with the spontaneous wit of Mock the Week. There’ll even be a cash prize for the best item on the night!’
So it appears to be a panel show with a bit of a gameshow twist. We still don’t know what TV channel this is being piloted for but we can probably assume it is TV.
Meanwhile Mitchell and Webb are still filming back. Robert Webb said the pair were on a night shoot yesterday and we have a few new names joining the cast such as Louise Brealey as Cass. We also have a set date for autumn. Not dates yet for Upstart Crow.
