BBC One is to screen a 90 minute documentary this Christmas to mark the success and 25th anniversary of comedy series Blackadder. Cast and crew, including Rowan Atkinson, will discuss their involvement in the show which ran for four series in the 1980’s.
As well as Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Richard Curtis, Ben Elton, Miranda Richardson, Tim McInnerny and Tony Robinson will also take part in the Tiger Aspect produced Blackadder Rides Again.
Ricky Kelehar, Executive Producer and Director of Factual Entertainment, Tiger Aspect, Productions, said: “We are extremely excited to have persuaded the entire creative team behind this iconic sitcom to appear in the same show for the very first time since they all worked together.”
“Many of them have since gone on to become towering talents around the world, including Rowan – who has never before spoken in detail about playing the fantastic anti-hero, Edmund Blackadder.”
