Apple teaming up with BBC to co-produce comedy series starring Imelda Staunton
Apple seems to be really continuing its focus on content production, with its latest project, teaming up with the BBC. They are both co-producing a brand new eight part comedy series currently titled ‘Alabama’. This was first reported to be the case by comedy website Chortle.
The series is being written by former stand-up comedian, Andy Wolton, and will star Imelda Staunton, famous for many appearances in British Comedy series ‘Up the Garden Path’, and the painfully annoying Headmistress of Hogwarts Dolores Umbridge in the firm ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’, then later in the ‘Deathly Hallows’.
It is rumoured that the series is currently in production and will preview worldwide next year on Apples new TV service, Apple TV+. Neither Apple or the BBC have commented on the rumours, and the plot of the new series is still unknown. Whatever the show may be, we have a little wait to find out for sure what it is about and if it reaches the service at all.
