BBC bosses have ordered a full series of Two Doors Down, Simon Carlyle’s hit Scottish comedy which aired on News Year’s Eve 2013.
Starring Doon Mackichan as the host of a chaotic family Hogmanay party, the original one-off episode was warmly greeted by reviewers.
Carlyle will partner with Gregor Sharp to write a six-part series which will film this autumn in and around Glasgow for an early 2016 transmission on BBC Two.
BBC Scotland has also been commissioned to produce a number of other series, including What’s Funny about Leaving Home? is a 30 minute pilot sketch show for BBC One Scotland, Mountain Goats which features a ragtag family of Mountain Rescue volunteers, and a TV version of Radio 4’s Stop/Start.
Ewan Angus, Commissioning Editor, BBC Scotland, said: “This fantastic range of programmes highlights the quality of comedy talent in Scotland.
“Developing comedy writing, production and performance is one of BBC Scotland’s priorities and it’s great news that we have so much to offer our audiences in the coming months.”
