Filming is underway on The Wright Way, a new six-part sitcom from writer Ben Elton which stars David Haig as a fastidious local council Health and Safety manager.
Wright relishes the rules and regulations he uses in his professional life and only wishes he could apply them to his private life, which often stumbles haplessly into chaos.
The ensemble cast includes Mina Anwar, Toby Longworth, Joanne Matthews, Beattie Edmonson, Brenda Edwards, and Luke Gell in the ensemble.
Ben Elton says: “All my happiest television memories concern BBC comedy and in particular BBC sitcoms. It’s an honour and a privilege to get the chance to be a part of that tradition again and I’m as excited today as I was when The Young Ones was commissioned 30 years ago.”
The Wright Way is being filmed at MediaCityUK, Salford, from January-March 2013 for transmission later in the year.
