Comedy Central UK today announce a new original comedy commission, ‘Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains’.
The 6x60' series will involve celebrity guests revisiting their teenage years. Each celebrity will take a trip down memory lane; competing across fashion, pop culture, retro gadgets, first loves, school reports and more to get their teenage years recognised as the most embarrassing by comedian Rhod Gilbert.
With mystery guests popping up along the way, offering up further revelations the show celebrates those ultimate embarrassing teenage moments, and it’s down to Rhod to judge which celebrity should be crowned ‘winner'.
Sebastian Cardwell, Deputy Director of Programmes at ViacomCBS Networks UK commented: "I’m excited to be teaming up with Rumpus Media again for our next comedy commission. Rhod Gilbert is the perfect host to delve into the teenage lives of our celebrity guests. I can’t wait to see what embarrassing revelations come to light!"
Rhod Gilbert said: "I was a very cool teenager, making one good decision after another…fashion, I got it just right, my hair was always great, love was one smooth happy ride after another and I had great taste in music, books and Kay’s catalogues. But not all my guests were like me, and I want to hear all about their traumatic teens and adolescent aberrations - the good, the bad, the hormonal and the lock-yourself-in-the-toilet embarrassing."
The series will start filming later this month and is set to air in early 2021 on Comedy Central.
