FremantleMedia to laugh out loud at Mipcom 2006

MUMBAI: Fremantle International Distribution (FID), the distribution arm of global production outfit FremantleMedia will bring a comedy line-up for the television trade event Mipcom in Cannes, France.

FremantleMedia Enterprises CEO David Ellender, says that a raft of new and favourite comedy titles will make the trip to Cannes for the trade event from 9-13 October 2006.

Fresh from its BBC2 debut, the newest addition to Fremantlemedia's comedy family is That Mitchell & Webb Look. This is a sketch show featuring the comedy duo David Mitchell and Robert Webb. As Mitchell and Webb bring their radio show to television, the new series is filled with riotous characters and ideas-driven sketches, lampooning the likes of the Nazis right through to Her Majesty the Queen. Intelligent, socially acute, sometimes satirical, sometimes bizarre, but always funny! 

Best-selling author, child psychology expert and highly esteemed childcare guru - there isn’t a parenting problem for which Professor George Hartley hasn’t got a rational, reasoned answer. However, he’s never quite got round to the actual practical side of parenting. That is, until now. In the comedy, The Complete Guide To Parenting George finds himself thrown into the parenting deep end when his wife takes a job in Paris and he takes sole responsibility for their seven year old son, Jamie. Fortunately, George has people around him to help. Unfortunately, this assistance comes in the form of his inefficient, celebrity-obsessed P.A. and a foul-mouthed, Antipodean au-pair. Clearly this isn’t going to be child’s play!

From Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette’s Coquette Productions comes Daisy Does America. In the comedy series actress-comedian Daisy Donovan travels the country in pursuit of the American dream, soon discovering that the phrase means different things to different people. Fast-paced and irreverent, it’s a look at some of America’s most extreme characters and lifestyles, as seen through the eyes of a Brit, and highlights the quirks and oddities of the American way of life.

Along the way, Daisy pokes fun at herself and the characters she comes across in her unique, tongue-in-cheek style. As Daisy Does America, she strives to conform to the sometimes-bizarre characters and situations she encounters and the results are unpredictable and hilarious. 

Man Stroke Woman is a sketch show that is silly and joyous in tone. The IT Crowd joins the fun with a comical look at the sub-species of I.T. gurus working in the basement of Reynholm Industries - a surreal, and very funny, look at the underclass of a company. Comedy Inc. tickles funny bones with its mix of sharp, fast-paced humour and irreverence, featuring sketch, TV and movie parody, non-existent cable shows, ads for products that don't exist and characters that will become fixtures of popular culture for years to come.

Ellender says, "FID has an unrivalled heritage of taking comedy to the world and we are pleased to continue the tradition with this extensive collection of sketch, sitcom, parody and observational humour. As a key genre for us, we are constantly working to identify, invest in and nurture the best up-and-coming writers and performers, to ensure that audiences will be laughing with FID for many years to come.
