All3Media International’s Fresh Meat, the iconic student life comedy drama created by Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain for Channel 4 from Objective Media Group, UK, is celebrating an anniversary as well as recent deals in the USA.
The show will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a live retrospective event at London’s BFI this month, with all six cast alumni – Jack Whitehall, Charlotte Ritchie, Zawe Ashton, Joe Thomas, Kimberly Nixon and Greg McHugh – and the show’s creators attending an in-person discussion and screening.
Distributed by All3Media International, the celebrated series found global success with audiences across Europe, Australia, Asia and North America. More recently deals have been concluded in the US and Canada on the Roku Channel (AVOD) as well as on Tubi (also US and Canada AVOD) and on Crackle for AVOD in the US. The show is also available on Prime Video in the US.
Widely lauded for their satirical comedy writing on Fresh Meat, the writing duo also created Peep Show, which is now available from All3Media International via its acquisition of the DRG/ NENT catalogue. Other credits for Armstrong and Bain include The Old Guys, Babylon and, alongside Chris Morris, the movie Four Lions. Armstrong’s multi-award-winning drama, Succession, has been renewed for a fourth series, whilst Sam Bain’s film The Stand In, starring Drew Barrymore, debuted in 2020.
