Writer and director Marc Senior says: ”I grew up in an era where I watched The Lenny Henry Show, Desmonds and The Real McCoy and there’s nothing like that on TV at the moment.”
Annika Allen who co-wrote and produced the series stated: We wanted to create a show that was exactly how we wanted it to be without any outside influences. Plus if we waited on traditional funding or a commission we could still be waiting now. So we decided to do it ourselves in the hope that we can re edit the format to 6 x 30 min episodes for a TX on TV. With Felix Dexter passing, ChoiceFM no more and people from BAME backgrounds leaving the creative industries in their droves, we feel its a good time for a series like this to leave its mark.”
