‘Stuck’: Brand New Comedy Series Written By & Starring Dylan Moran For BBC Two
Dylan Moran is returning to tv comedy with a brand new series on BBC Two & iPlayer called ‘Stuck‘ it has been announced today. Moran writes and stars in the show, and is joined on-screen by Morgana Robinson.
Dan (Moran) and Carla (Robinson) are at a crossroads. Dan has been recently made redundant, while Carla is wondering whether this is all she can expect from life. Add their age gap to the mix, and the re-emergence onto the scene of Carla’s ex-girlfriend Maya, and it’s no wonder that they’re feeling stuck.
“I’m delighted to be working with the smartypants comedy wonks at Hat Rack, going to Belfast to shoot our crazy little series, commented Moran. “Morgana is a one-woman army of comic power, and the little gang of loons we found make a very lumpy talent piñata. Terrifying. I’m only ok with this because I know our brilliant director Ian FitzGibbon specialises in coaxing magic even from clumps like me who breathe through their foreheads and bang into the walls. Check us out.”
This marks Morans first return to his own original tv comedy since his beloved and critically acclaimed series ‘Black Books’. He has popped up in a few other shows since then, such as the brilliant ‘Uncle’, and Sky’s ‘Little Crackers’, along with films such as ‘Run Fatboy Run’, ‘Good Vibrations’, and ‘Pixie’. He is next due to appear in the Netflix miniseries ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin‘.
Morgana Robinson is known for her work on Sky’s ‘Intelligence’, Channel 4’s ‘The Windsors’, and Sky sketch show ‘Psychobitches’. She also appeared in ‘Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe’ (weirdly as Russell Brand!), Vic & Bob’s ‘House of Fools’ on BBC Two, and Channel 4’s ‘Toast of London’. She is next due to pop up in BBC’s ‘Toast of Tinseltown’, and takes the lead role in UKTV Gold’s sitcom ‘Newark, Newark’.
‘Stuck’ is a Hat Trick Production for the BBC, written by Dylan Moran and commissioned by BBC Comedy. The Director is Ian FitzGibbon (‘Hullraisers’, ‘Raised By Wolves’, ‘Moone Boy’), the Producer is Nick Coupe and the Executive Producer is Jimmy Mulville. The Commissioning Editors for BBC Comedy are Gregor Sharp and Seb Barwell and the Commissioning Editor for BBC Northern Ireland is Eddie Doyle.
“I can’t think of a better way of beginning a new year than working on a Dylan Moran comedy,” adds EP, Jimmy Mulville. “In Stuck he turns the traditional rom-com on its head with some hilarious and painfully honest observations. And with Morgana Robinson as his co-star it promises to be a masterclass in comic writing and performing.”
‘Stuck‘ begins filming in January 2022 and will air on BBC Two and iPlayer (date to be announced). If you want to keep track of Season 3, add the show via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
