Porters Series 2

Porters series 2 premieres Thursday 14 March at 10PM on Dave. Tune in every Thursday to see the escapades at St. Etheldreda’s hospital – an upstairs/downstairs medical comedy. With wheels.

Daniel Mays joins this hilarious comedy series as Anthony De La Mer – is Anthony all that he says that is? Danny told The British Comedy Guide: Anthony is the new porter on the block. I would probably describe him as a jack-of-all-trades and he’d probably describe himself as that. He’s a very funny character hopefully, but he’s kind of a complete and utter bullshitter. He professes to everyone that he comes from a military background and he’s served lots of tours of duty in Basra and places like that. He’s very keen on psychology and will try to get in to peoples’ minds. He’s very popular around the hospital and doing deals and everything so he has this kind of sanctimonious egocentric air to him, which obviously lends itself to him hopefully being very funny. I personally think he just lives at home with his mum and it’s all just bullshit. But that’s a great thing and I think what we’ve tried to play with throughout the series is ‘do you believe him or do you not?’

UK Comedy Guide

Code 404 – Sky One

Great news today that Sky One has greenlit a full series of the comedy Code 404 starring Daniel Mays, Stephen Graham, and Richard Gadd. It is expected to run for six, half-hour episodes later this year.

Deadline has the full story: Code 404 is set in the near future and will revolve around two Detective Inspectors, DI John Major (Daniel Mays) and DI Roy Carver (Stephen Graham), who are the top crime fighting duo in the Unit. But when an undercover sting goes horribly wrong, Major is gunned down on the job and killed. How will the SIU function without Major? It doesn’t have to. As an ‘asset’ considered too valuable to lose, Major’s body is fast-tracked into an experimental Artificial Intelligence project to bring him back from the dead. The only problem is, Major 2.0 may look like and sound like the original, but something has been lost in translation – quite a lot actually. His arrogant demeanor and gung-ho approach remain but his crimefighting instincts have completely deserted him.

The series is produced by Broadchurch and Tin Star indie Kudos and Water and Power Productions It was written by Horrible Histories and Not Going Out writer Daniel Peak and directed by Al Campbell. The successful, but never-aired, pilot was directed by Ben Palmer.

Sky’s Jon Mountague said: “What a coup, Stephen Graham and Daniel Mays are the dream team – the perfect Carver and Major. Danny Peak’s scripts are endlessly hilarious and very, very arresting. Can’t wait.”

Water & Power’s Tom Miller said, “Danny and Stephen are an electric double-act, and with Daniel Peak’s brilliant scripts we can’t wait to bring this to life for Sky One.”

Kudos’ Temple added, “We couldn’t be more delighted to have such outstanding actors bringing heart and passion to these joyful scripts – this really is going to be great.”

Remember these tweets from this past summer? Well, they were on-set for Code 404!

Filming on the full series is expected to begin in March 2019 with transmission later this year on Sky One.
