"THE GOES WRONG SHOW" DEBUTS ON AMAZON PRIME VIDEO ON AUGUST 15
All six episodes from Mischief's BBC One hit comedy series The Goes Wrong Show will premiere this Saturday, August 15 in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia on Amazon Prime Video. The series, licensed by Lionsgate, is inspired by Mischief's award winning Broadway and West End stage production, The Play That Goes Wrong. The Goes Wrong Show debuted in the UK to widespread acclaim and recently received a 2020 TV Choice Award nomination for Best Comedy.
Here is what people have said:
"Thank goodness for their genuinely original take... fun for any age."
"I watched it three times, and it only got better"
"This stuff has to be directed and performed with pinpoint accuracy if it's to succeed. Fortunately, it's perfectly, deliberately, terrible."
"I don't think family entertainment gets better than The Goes Wrong Show... "
"On a par with Pixar in our household... "
"Instant TV classic... like a cross between Morecambe and Wise and Airplane."
-Charlie Brooker, Creator - Black Mirror
The Goes Wrong Show is written by and stars the original founding Mischief members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, alongside Nancy Zamit, Charlie Russell, Bryony Corrigan, Greg Tannahill, Dave Hearn and Chris Leask. Every week, the well-meaning amateurs of the Cornley Dramatic Society attempt to put on a series of terrible TV plays, all of which end in disaster - live in front of a studio audience: a horror story, a wartime drama, a legal thriller, a period romance, a deep south melodrama and a Christmas fable. Expect huge laughs from the best slapstick performers around. Also for television, the Mischief team adapted their hit stage production Peter Pan Goes Wrong in December 2016 and created A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong starring Diana Rigg and Derek Jacobi in December 2017, both for BBC One.
The Goes Wrong Show is a Mischief Screen/Big Talk production in association with Lionsgate and YTD HK. The series is produced by Jim Poyser and directed by Martin Dennis. The Executive Producers are Hilary Strong and Kenny Wax for Mischief Screen, Kenton Allen, Saurabh Kakkar and Matthew Justice for Big Talk Productions and the series is commissioned by Shane Allen, Controller of BBC Comedy, Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content and Kate Daughton, Commissioning Editor for the BBC.
