Toast Of Tinseltown | Preview (BBC Two)
Written and created by Arthur Mathews and Matt Berry and produced by Objective Fiction in association with wiip, Toast of Tinseltown will feature a mix of new and returning cast members.
The 6x30' series stars Matt as Steven Toast, an eccentric and arrogant actor determined to win the recognition he mistakenly believes he deserves.
Three series of Toast Of London originally aired between 2013 and 2015, all written by Arthur and Matt, who scooped the Bafta Best Male Comedy Performance for his role.
Matt Berry says: “I couldn't be more thrilled to not only be working with Arthur and the rest of the Toast family again, but to also be taking the show to the BBC which I know Toast himself would very much approve.”
Arthur Mathews says: “It was a thrill to be writing Toast again after a long gap. Hollywood is a brave new world for Toast. There will be triumphs and tribulations (but mostly tribulations - and indeed humiliations).”
Shane Allen, Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning says: “This sitcom is one of the stand-out comedy gems of the last decade. His name belongs in the pantheon of celebrated British comedy character buffoons - Partridge, Brent and Toast.”
Toast Of Tinseltown begins Tuesday 4th January at 10pm on BBC Two.
