BBC Three’s newest comedy Him and Her starring Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani made it’s debut on Monday night, the show brought in 567,000 viewers, breaking the channel’s record for a new sitcom’s launch.
Him and Her is produced by BigTalk Productions, which is home to Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and others. BigTalk have recently produced BBC 2 shitcom Rev and the new Micheal Cera film Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.
Him and Her, which sounds really boring, didnt move from the one set for the whole episode and only used 5 characters, the directing was very good and there were more laughs than I expected, some shit jokes too and the Solemani’s character is pretty irritating, but we’d say it was worth a watch.
Remember Channel 4’s sitcom Free Agents?
Thought not, well anyway it has been announced today that the series is going to be remade in America by NBC.
This seems a very bizarre choice of sitcom to remake especially due to the response it received over here, i mean it didn’t exactly cause a storm, despite starring Brticom a-listers Stephen Mangan and Sharon Horgan.
It will be the first show produced by Simon Pegg’s Bigtalk Productions to make it over to America, this might go someway to answering why this is being remade as hot off the heels of Hollywood smash ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs The World’ Bigtalk seem to be making big waves in the States.
Big Talks latest sitcom Him and Her starts Monday at 10.30pm on BBC Three.
