ALAN CARR'S CHANGING ENDS RENEWED FOR SECOND SERIES ON ITVX
Alan Carr's autobiographical comedy Changing Ends has been recommissioned for a second series on ITVX, according to The Sun.
Changing Ends is co-written by the BAFTA award winning Alan Carr and the Scottish BAFTA & RTS award winning Simon Carlyle (Two Doors Down), based on Alan’s own life in Northampton in the 1980’s growing up as the son of a fourth division football manager.
Alan stars in the series as himself in present day, whilst taking on the role of young Alan is rising star Oliver Savell (Belfast). The comedy series is love letter to a time and a town where things weren’t always so inclusive.
A source told The Sun: "It’s very unusual for TV chiefs to green light a second series without fully testing a first but the reception to Changing Ends on ITVX was so overwhelmingly positive, they know they’re on to a winner."
The series is produced by Baby Cow Productions and written by Alan Carr and Simon Carlyle. The director is Dave Lambert. The Exec producers are Baby Cow’s Sarah Monteith and Rupert Majendie, alongside Alan Carr, Danny Julian and Simon Carlyle. Mollie Freedman Berthoud will serve as series producer.
Changing Ends is available on ITVX now with details about the second series to be revealed in due course.
