New John Finnemore Radio Series


Excerpt for anyone link leary:
John Finnemore is working on a new comedy series for Radio 4. The creator of Cabin Pressure and John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme is now working on The John Finnemore Project.

The new shows will consist of six standalone half-hour comedies. Each one will be a self-contained story, with its own cast. There is no linking theme between the episodes, although the station does jokingly say "all strictly adhere to the overarching theme of 'ideas John has had for this series'."

Talking about the episodes, the BBC explains: "They range from hot-desking office workers attempting to conduct a romance at the rate of four minutes a day, to a band of explorers beginning to wonder if they'll ever reach Australia's Great Inland Sea.

"Others feature characters ranging from a charming burglar to a charmless bath saleswoman; from the worst teacher of English Conversation in contemporary Germany to the best imaginer of tigers in 1950s Britain."

The creator says: "If there's one thing they all have in common... I'll be very surprised. And a bit annoyed."

The John Finnemore Project is being overseen by David Tyler at Pozzitive Productions, the same producer who worked with Finnemore on Cabin Pressure.

The John Finnemore Project is scheduled to be broadcast in the 11:30am slot on Radio 4 from Friday 16th October 2015.
