Sky_logo_900Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon’s The Trip is moving from BBC Two to Sky Atlantic.

The series sees the pair playing fictionalised versions of themselves and the latest run feature them head off on a road trip from the North Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast for a fresh helping of gastronomic adventures.

Sky says The Trip to Spain, which is due to start filming later this year, will include six stunning Spanish locales, from Cantabria, to the Basque region, Aragon, Rioja, Castile-La Mancha and Andalusia.

The series is created and directed by Michael Winterbottom for Revolution Films.

Steve Coogan said: “Having thought long and hard about yet another sojourn into culinary distractions and middle age, I have reluctantly agreed to Eviva Espana.

“I have a hole in my diary, there will be free food and accommodation and Rob Brydon is surprisingly good company. I also like Michael.”

Rob Brydon said: “I’m looking forward to reuniting with Steve and Michael for The Trip to Spain.”

Zai Bennett, Director of Sky Atlantic, said: “The Trip is as close to perfection as you get in comedy.

“It’s a rare chance to watch comic masters, totally authoring their work with creative freedom. It’s an absolutely perfect fit for Sky Atlantic.

“We are very happy to ensure that this award-winning comedy will continue building on the channel’s relationships with Steve, Rob and Revolution Films showcasing our continued investment in top-flight original comedy.”
