The National Television Awards proved to be more than a night of trophy passing. The BBC One show “Mrs. Brown’s Boys” won the prize for Best British Comedy. Why would this make a difference in the comedy movie world?
The hit sitcom “Mrs. Brown’s Boys” will go from our television sets to a full-length big screen feature. Production will begin this fall for the comical film and another series may make it’s way into our living rooms shortly after.
The British sitcom first aired on BBC One in 2011, laying claim to three million viewers. The show has gained another five million fans since then.
Brendan O’Carroll, star of “Mrs. Brown’s Boys,” announced at the NTA that the cast will begin shooting in September. The British comedy has a planned release in June of 2014. O’Carroll stated there is a possibility of a fourth series to follow the film project.
O’Carroll said he would film the three series and his job would be done, although the series has been far more successful than he imagined. He also claims they are offering so much money that it would be hard to turn it down.
Although there is all this talk about “Mrs. Brown’s Boys” would be redesigned into a film, O’Carroll also admits the script hasn’t actually been written yet. He does promise the written script will be “really funny” but as of today, the writing process still awaits.
I’ve written the trailer. I haven’t written any more. But if there’s anyone from Universal or the BBC listening, I think you’ll really love it when you get it.
