OWN MISCHIEF’S BIGGEST DISASTER YET: Lionsgate Set To Release THE GOES WRONG SHOW Series 1 on DVD This February
BRING MISCHIEF HOME ON DVD 10 FEBRUARY
Own Mischief’s biggest disaster yet, THE GOES WRONG SHOW, when it arrives on DVD on 10 February. Featuring all six episodes of the BBC 1 hit show, including the smash-hit Christmas Special, the DVD also boasts a behind-the-scenes look at the Mischief team with the featurette “Meet the Folks Who Actually Make It Go Wrong.”
From the creators of The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, THE GOES WRONG SHOW brings the well-meaning amateurs of the Cornley Dramatic Society to the small screen to perform six half-hour plays (live!) – a horror story, a wartime drama, a legal thriller, a period romance, a deep south melodrama and a Christmas fable. And every time, the performance goes terribly, terribly wrong. Sets collapse, special effects fail, actors dry - life, limb and the studio audience are threatened. But the show must go on…

About Big Talk Productions
Big Talk Productions is one of the UK’s leading television production companies, achieving an exceptional output of original scripted comedy and drama and maintaining its strong track record of nurturing talent over the last 25 years. The company began with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright and Nira Park’s cult television series ‘Spaced’. Since, Big Talk has been named Broadcast’s ‘Indie Production Company of the Year’ and listed among their ‘Best Places to Work in TV’ in both 2017 and 2018, and was nominated for ‘Production Company of the Year’ at the 2018 Edinburgh TV Awards.
Big Talk is led by Chief Executive Kenton Allen and Managing Director Matthew Justice, who have pioneered BAFTA-winning output including three series of ‘Rev.’ and ‘Mum’, and four of ‘Him & Her’. With the release of the first series of Back in 2017, Big Talk continued its collaboration with David Mitchell and Robert Webb following ‘Ambassadors’ (2013). Written by Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning Simon Blackwell, ‘Back’ is now back for a second series.
BAFTA-nominated and Rose d’Or-winning ‘Friday Night Dinner’, written by Robert Popper, became Big Talk’s longest running comedy when it aired its fifth series in May 2018. The series’ strong return, achieving the highest ratings since the pilot, secured a recommission for a sixth.
Big Talk’s commitment to the discovery and cultivation of new talent produced, in 2016, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s debut TV series ‘Crashing’, written by and starring the now multi-award-winning writer. The launch of Daniel Lawrence Taylor’s debut comedy ‘Timewasters’ in 2017 won him the RTS Breakthrough Award and a BAFTA-nomination for Best Scripted Comedy. The second series, which aired in March this year, has already garnered multiple nominations at the RTS North West Awards, MViSAs and Screen Nation Awards.
Big Talk continues to make its mark in drama programming, following ‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook’, ‘Mr Sloane’, ‘Our Zoo’, ‘Houdini and Doyle’, ‘Bliss’ and two series of ‘Youngers’. Most recently, a new BBC One drama with Stephen Merchant, due to be filmed in Bristol next year, was announced. In 2016, Big Talk achieved ITV’s biggest drama launch of the year with the relaunch of much-loved, BAFTA-winning ‘Cold Feet’ following a thirteen-year hiatus. A subsequent three series have been commissioned: the second series won the RTS North West Award for Best Drama in 2018 and the third, which aired in January this year, achieved widespread critical acclaim. A second series of ‘Living the Dream’, a 6 x 60 U.S. set comedy-drama for Sky One, starring Phil Glenister and Lesley Sharp also aired January 2019. In September 2018, the company also forayed into entertainment with new comedy panel show, ‘The Imitation Game’, hosted by Alexander Armstrong, highly popular on ITV.
In September 2019, ‘Defending the Guilty’, a new courtroom comedy written by Kieron Quirke, aired on BBC Two. Starring Will Sharpe and BAFTA-winner Katherine Parkinson, the comedy has already been commissioned for a second series. ‘The Goes Wrong Show’, Big Talk’s new commission by the BBC in partnership with Mischief Theatre, kicked off over Christmas, featuring a live audience, many a complex set and a lot of choreographed chaos. The Offenders’ was announced in January 2020, Stephen Merchant’s first primetime thriller, a 6x60 BBC One contemporary drama based on Merchant’s own life experience as the son of two community service supervisors.
Big Talk continues to work with some of the most exciting voices in both the UK and the US to bring fresh, dynamic, authored stories to screen.
