Mischief Screen is a comedy production company set up by Mischief Worldwide, Anthology Studios, and Hilary Strong and is developing an exciting new slate of comedy shows.
The first show to be commissioned is The Goes Wrong Show, written by and starring three of the original founding Mischief Theatre members, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, alongside Nancy Zamit, Charlie Russell, Bryony Corrigan, Greg Tannahill, Dave Hearn and Chris Leask. With their unique brand of physical theatre, the Mischief team will bring all aspects of their globally recognised talents to the television show, which will be filmed in front of a live studio audience.
The series sees The Cornley Drama Society undertaking another (overly) ambitious endeavour, held back by prolific over-actor Robert Grove, the screen-hogging Sandra Wilkinson, and the artistically mistrusted Dennis Tyde. Six brand new, hand-crafted, half hours of theatrical catastrophe include the gripping courtroom drama “A Trial to Watch” and World War II spy thriller “The Pilot” (which is not the pilot).
The Goes Wrong Show is simply Mischief’s biggest disaster yet.
Filming begins in March in Manchester.
