The British Blacklist reports that BBC Three has commissioned a full series of Dane Baptiste’s sitcom, Sunny D. This news comes after a pilot episode of the show was featured on BBC iplayer this year.

Writer and comedian Baptiste said,

“I’m incredibly happy that Sunny D has been commissioned! It represents the possibility of the mainstream opening the comedy landscape to a new perspective and the resurrection of the black British sitcom. I grew up watching sitcoms on the BBC, so to have them invest in my own project is an opportunity that I relish and am grateful for.”

BBC Executive Producer Rebecca Papworth added,

“Sunny D gives full flight to rising star Dane Baptiste’s comic rage against an unsympathetic universe. It is laugh out loud, imaginative, compelling and honest storytelling from a big name of the future.”

Congratulations Dane.
