BBC Three has picked up the comedy pilot Enterprice for a full series. Written by and starring Kayode Ewumi, who shot to fame with the popular internet series #HoodDocumentary, four 25-minute episodes of Enterprice have been commissioned following a pilot which aired as part of the Comedy Slices strand last year.
Speaking on his latest venture, Ewumi said:
“I think this is crazy! To get given a series at the age of 23 will always be a blessing. I can’t wait to show the world this new baby of mine.”
This follows news that BBC Three has been handed an additional £10 million as it looks to ramp up commissioning of non-scripted formats. It has order a full series of Eating With My Ex, which invites former couples to meet up for dinner and answer brutally honest questions about why their relationships went wrong. The show, which originally launched as a 7-minute episode, is now being turned into a 30-minute show.
Elsewhere, it has commissioned a raft of documentaries including Blakeway North’s mental illness film The Voices In My Head, Hello Halo’s three-part series Different Like Me, Annie Price: The Truth About Having A Baby and two docs fronted by Stacey Dooley.
