Comedy series commission for STV Productions

THE production arm of STV has been commissioned to produce a comedy-based chat show, hosted by Jo Brand.

The commission – from UKTV’s comedy channel, Gold – will see Brand host five, 30-minute shows called Jo Brand’s Great Wall of Comedy.

Says a UKTV media statement, Brand will be joined by Barry Cryer and Rebecca Front and “a host of star guests from the world of sitcom as they delve into the archives to reveal little known facts about our favourite comedy icons and shows”.

Jo Bunting will series produce for STV.
