LONDON: DRG has picked up the international distribution rights for the upcoming BBC series Tracey Ullman’s Show, an original comedy sketch program.
Tracey Ullman’s Show will present the titular comedienne’s observation of modern life. The 6x30-minute series will feature celebrity impressions and returning comedy characters that the award-winning actress is known for, along with a number of new characters. Ullman will be attending next month’s MIPCOM to promote her show to international buyers at the market.
Noel Hedges, the executive VP of content at DRG, remarked: “We’re thrilled that Tracey will be joining us at MIPCOM to launch her new series. Tracey is known around the world for her funny, intelligent comedy performances and the upcoming series will include a range of characters and sketches that will be recognizable, familiar and topical to international audiences.”
Ullman, the series’ creator, added: “It’s a privilege to be doing this. I still feel as inspired to inhabit people as I did when I was 6, standing on the windowsill in my mother’s bedroom, putting on a show.”
