UKTV Gold has ordered three new original comedies. Entitled Henry IX, Marley’s Ghosts and Bull, the shows will air on the channel later this year and early in 2016.
Richard Watsham, UKTV’s Director of Commissioning, said: “The first three of our new commissions for Gold offer a fantastic range of different stories and comic styles. Between them they will start to establish a new tone of voice for our originations. We’ve deliberately targeted scripts that play to Gold viewers’ known love of classic British sitcoms but they’re also modern, sharply-written pieces which deliver on our promise of high quality, world class comedy.”
