BBC Two has announced it will air the pilot episode of the new comedy sketch show, ‘Famalam’.
Famalam shines a comedic light on everything – from alien encounters in the outer reaches of the galaxy to what happens when a man is left on his own in a house for 10 minutes holding only a phone and a remote. With a dazzling array of accents, cultural observations and colourful costumes, Famalam gives us a glimpse of the latest Nollywood blockbuster, reveals who might be responsible for internet spam and introduces us to the real rulers of the world – spoiler alert – it’s not the G20…
Famalam star Samson Kayo said:
“Famalam has got its own style and energy – it’s really fresh. I hope the viewers enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed making it. It’s funny.”
The show also stars Vivienne Acheampong (The Aliens), Gbemisola Ikumelo (Sunny D), Roxanne Sternberg (Emerald City), John Macmillan (Dark Knight Rises, Chewing Gum) and introducing former Vine superstar Tom Moutchi .
Producer – Akemnji Ndifornyen, Director – Tom Marshall, Executive Producers – Ben Caudell and Chris Sussman.
