Josh Widdicombe sitcom 'Josh' commissioned by BBC Three for a six episode series
Josh is a brand-new sitcom series written by Josh Widdicombe and Tom Craine, and, as the title suggests, stars Josh too. The show follows Josh and two mates living in a flatshare and features Elis James as Owen and Beattie Edmondson as Kate. Jack Dee also stars as the trio’s landlord, Geoff, who is a shoo-in for this year's Most Irritating Landlord award. This sitcom will focus on the small things in life. Josh is like the rest of us: easily embarrassed, full of polite indignation and mildly irritated by having the teabag and hot water given to him separately on a train... but only for Josh can that irritation escalate within thirty minutes to him accidentally scalding the driver and causing a three train pile-up.
The series follows on from a pilot which was made as part of the BBC Comedy Feeds strand and is made by BBC In-house Comedy Production. It is directed by David Schneider (The Day Today, I'm Alan Partridge) and produced by Simon Mayhew-Archer (Small Scenes, The Guns Of Adam Riches, Tom Wrigglesworth's Open Letters). Josh is written by Josh Widdicombe (The Last Leg, Live at The Apollo, 8 Out of Ten Cats) and Tom Craine (Jigsaw, Live At The Electric).
The season kicks off here! Josh Widdicombe will be hosting the new series of the award winning Fighting Talk on BBC 5live. The only radio show where guests battle it out to win points for punditry whilst discussing the burning sporting stories.
On the panel this week - Boxing and sports commentator John Rawling, The Telegraphs Jim White, BBC F1 Reporter Jennie Gow and comedian, writer and crown green bowler Bob Mills.
Tune in to BBC 5live from 11am on Saturdays, catch up on iPlayer or subscribe to the weekly Podcast.
Josh's pilot airs on the BBC
Sometimes life just isn’t fair. For Josh, sometimes feels like always. Dumped by his fiancée, Josh is forced to return to his old flat-share with Owen, the most romantic and lyrical Welshman since records began (and that includes Tom Jones) and Kate, who spends her life pursuing every trend from A to Zumba. All Josh wants is a night in with his flatmates to get over his heartbreak, but instead he is left alone to face Geoff, a shoo-in for this year's Most Irritating Landlord Award, and a local barmaid who's convinced Josh is "on the spectrum"... the Local Weirdo/Serial Killer spectrum.
