BBC Wales have announced a 30-minute sit-com pilot for Mammoth, written by and starring Mike Bubbins, alongside Joseph Marcell (The Fresh Prince of Bell Air), Jan Anderson (Casualty, Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Mali Ann Rees (Tourist Trap).
Mike Bubbins says of his forthcoming sitcom, “Tony Mammoth is a man from the 1970s who is frozen in time, to be brought miraculously back to life in the modern day. I tried to make Mammoth a comedy full of heart, positivity and optimism. It has a brilliant, talented cast and crew, and BBC Wales couldn’t have been more supportive throughout the whole process. I still can’t quite believe it’s happening. I didn’t think when I resigned as a PE teacher and drove out of the school gates, to try to make a career of comedy, that one day, just fifteen short years later, I’d be driving back in through those same gates to record my own BBC sitcom.”
