From BBC Three’s new comedy show, The Wrong Door
This is a trailer for The Wrong Door, a daring new sketch show set in a parallel universe – a fantastic world governed by the laws of comedy (not nature), where special effects seen in the movies and on TV are part of everyday life.
In this world herds of space hoppers and shopping trolleys roam the countryside; robots play tennis; mini-bars come with a helpful mini-barman; magazines come with a free, blow-up boyfriend; and MP3 players generate 3-D popstar holograms and monsters under the bed.
Viewers can meet the Booze Fairies, the Wizard of Oswestry, the World’s Most Annoying Creature and a love-struck dinosaur called Phillip. Here superheroes, wizards, dinosaurs and monsters casually go about their business amongst the daily irritations of explosions, disasters, battles, chases and driving lessons. The Wrong Door boasts a company cast and a genre-busting mix of celebrity cameos – look out for Brian Blessed, Dom Joly and Dr Fox. With unimaginable locations and impossible visual effects, The Wrong Door heralds a brave new world of comic possibility.
The Wrong Door is a BBC Vision production, written by Jack Cheshire and Ben Wheatley. It is directed by Ben Wheatley and produced by Jack Cheshire, head of the New Comedy Unit at the BBC. Executive Producer is Jon Rolph.
