AND DID THOSE FEET WITH ALAN PARTRIDGE COMMENCES FILMING, FIRST LOOK

Filming is officially underway for Alan Partridge’s brand new documentary series ‘And Did Those Feet… with Alan Partridge’.



Alan is settling into life back in Norfolk after a year working in Saudi Arabia, but the adjustment has left him with a deep sense of unease. Seeing himself and his homeland anew, there are pressing and frankly glaring questions he’d like to ask of himself and, on behalf of himself, of the country.



One of the first - if not the first - documentary to address the issue of mental wellness, the six-part series follows the revered and beloved broadcaster on a quest to understand what’s going on, with Britain’s minds and his own.


It’s a show that makes a statement that will create shockwaves: “I’m Alan Partridge, and I’m not OK.” Partridge will write, present and produce the series. He will also direct the series.



Filming kicked off last week in the South of England and over six episodes we will see Alan unpack what is missing in his life, explore why the nation is in such a funk, and find out what it might take to keep a person funk-free.


Alan Partridge comments: “I’m delighted to follow the Daily Mail’s exclusive coverage of filming and their gallery of paparazzi-style images with my own press release more or less confirming the details they’ve announced. All best, Alan.”


Sarah Monteith, Baby Cow CEO says: “Baby Cow are delighted to present all new Alan Partridge for BBC One. Broadcaster, Prodigal Son, National Treasure – he’s everything we need right now.”



Jon Petrie, BBC Director of Comedy Commissioning says: “Steve Coogan and Neil & Rob Gibbons have done it again. This look into the state of the nation (and Alan’s own psyche) through a unique lens – that of Alan Partridge – promises to further bolster the already iconic repertoire of the most legendary comedy character in the UK. This series will firmly cement Alan Partridge as a national treasure.”


And Did Those Feet… with Alan Partridge (6 x 30’) is a Baby Cow production for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
