Ruby Speaking is a new scripted comedy from Yellow Door Productions co-created by and starring the award-winning actress and comedian Jayde Adams and written by Abigail Wilson.
The Bristol-based series follows Ruby's misadventures and is inspired by the years Jayde spent working in a call centre.
Ruby is a popular addition to the workforce but puts other people’s problems above her own and definitely above making a sale. Fellow Bristolian Rosie Gaunt-Mathieson will direct and Jon Macqueen (Sliced, Phone Shop) will produce.
This new 6 x 30’ series will premiere on ITVX in 2023 and Yellow Door founder Lucy Lumsden will Exec Produce.
Nana Hughes, ITV’s Head of Comedy said; “The arrival of ITVX gives us more opportunities to commission a broad range of comedies and a dedicated place for the genre to call home...
"We want a huge cross section of contemporary, diverse and inclusive comedy. We want to take risks but most importantly we want our audiences to find shows that reflect them and make them laugh.
