Comedy Central UK orders 'Threesome'

By
Comedy Central HD
Comedy Central UK has announced that it is developing a new show called Threesome.

The seven-part series is the channel's first narrative comedy commission and focuses on three friends about to turn 30.

Alice lives with her boyfriend Mitch and their gay friend Richie, but they have a threesome on a night out which ends up with an unplanned pregnancy. They eventually decide to raise the baby together.

Irish actress Amy Huberman has signed up for the role of Alice, while Whites star Stephen Wight will play Mitch. The role of Richie will be taken on by Emun Elliott, who recently appeared in Lip Service and will feature in new drama Game Of Thrones.

Tom MacRae, who has previously written episodes of Doctor Who and Casualty, will pen the script.

Comedy Central UK's Pete Thornton said: "This new commission represents a big step forward for the channel, and we're very excited to be setting out on this journey with Tom MacRae's distinctive, bold and highly original scripts. We are delighted to be working with the hugely talented team at [production company] Big Talk, one of the brightest and most successful comedy indies in the UK, who have brought to life the UK's most distinctive comedies this year."

Threesome is expected to air on Comedy Central in the autumn.
