BBC Studios strengthens partnership with Fudge Park Productions
BBC Studios has renewed its partnership with Fudge Park Productions, the company founded by The Inbetweeners and The First Team creators, Iain Morris and Damon Beesley.

The agreement will see BBC Studios continue to work with Fudge Park to develop and distribute the production company’s broad development slate globally over the next three years.

The dynamic indie has produced some of the UK’s most popular comedy of recent years, which have brought younger audiences to the BBC and attracted huge global interest. Series include White Gold (Ed Westwick, Joe Thomas, James Buckley), Ill Behaviour (Chris Geere, Lizzy Kaplan, Tom Riley) #HoodDocumentary, and Enterprice (Kayode Ewumi). Most recently, the duo wrote and produced the six-part series, The First Team for BBC TWO starring Will Arnett.

Jonathan Blyth, Director of Comedy, BBC Studios says “Iain and Damon have a unique talent in making audiences fall in love with, and fall about laughing at, a host of unlikely protagonists - from double-glazing salesmen, budding entrepreneurs and (not quite) football mega stars. Their well-drawn out characters and the worlds they inhabit have led to series airing from the US to Russia. It has been a pleasure to work with Fudge Park and I am delighted that BBC Studios can help their unique brand of comedy travel and make audiences laugh around the world.

Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, Co-Founders of Fudge Park, said: "We are delighted to be working with BBC Studios, who have offered us incredible support, allowing us in turn to work with some brilliantly talented new creators of comedy."

Popular series from Fudge Park including The First Team, form part of BBC Studios comedy offering available to international buyers at MIPCOM 2020.
