The BBC announces four new BBC Comedy Slices for BBC Three, all of which are written by and/or star female talent: Ladybaby, Amicable, Dinosaur and Britney, which results in the majority of comedy programmes on BBC Three now being female led.
Kate Daughton, outgoing Head of Comedy at the BBC, says: “Building on the huge success of Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Daisy May Cooper, this marks a monumental achievement and is testament to the fact the most pioneering and exciting new voices in comedy are increasingly female.”
Created, written by and starring Jude Mack and Eliot Salt. Made by Avalon.
Ally and Leah have just broken up. As modern feminists and mature, evolved queer legends, they are determined for it to be problem-free and above all, amicable.
Amicable is a 'will they/won’t they/should they' comedy, with a joyful, hilarious and utterly disastrous couple at its heart.
Amicable is an Avalon production for BBC Three, commissioned by Shane Allen, Director of Comedy and Fiona Campbell, Controller BBC Three. The Executive Producer is Rob Aslett.
