“The best sitcom on television” – Sunday Times Culture
BBC Three and Big Talk Productions today announce a fourth and final series of the RTS award winning comedy HIM & HER, starring Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani to be made in summer 2013
Him & Her debuted on BBC Three in 2010 and went on to be one of the most successful sitcoms launched on the channel to date. The series won a Royal Television Award for Best Comedy Performance by Sarah Solemani and Russell Tovey and received a Breakthrough Talent nod at the 2012 BAFTA TV Awards for Stefan Golaszewski.
Writer Stefan Golaszewski returns to write the final series which will follow Becky and Steve as we see them leave the flat for the first time for Laura and Paul’s wedding. Richard Laxton who has directed all 18 episodes to date, will also return to helm the final series that he directed the pilot for in 2010 with Big Talk CEO Kenton Allen and Lyndsay Robinson producing.
The series was commissioned by Shane Allen, Controller of Comedy Commissioning and Zai Bennett, Controller of BBC Three.
Writer Stefan Golaszewski said: “After three series in Steve and Becky’s bedsit, we’re moving them into the outside world as we reach the final chapter of their story. It’s been a great few years and I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with such a talented team.”
Kenton Allen said: “Stefan’s brilliant dissection of young love and all the problems that come with it have given us four series of perfectly realised writing, acting and technical achievement. We’re so proud of H&H and think it will stand the ultimate test of time and I can’t wait for audiences to join Steve and Becky to witness the wedding of Laura, one of the most appalling characters on Television for a very long time.’
The 6 x 30′ series will start filming over the summer to transmit later in the year on BBC Three.
