Ill Behaviour: BBC series announced with first promo photo

Finally 3 part BBC series 'Ill Behaviour' has been announced by Deadline, accompanied by the first promo photo of Tom Riley, Lizzy Caplan, Chris Geere and Jessica Regan. We also finally find out about Tom's character! Read the article in full on Deadline.

EXCLUSIVE: In advance of the BBC Worldwide Showcase event in Liverpool next week, Fudge Park’s Iain Morris and Damon Beesley are teaming with hot Brit writer Sam Bain for three-part BBC Comedy laffer Ill Behaviour.

Exec produced by Fudge Park, the banner set up in 2015 by The Inbetweeners creators Morris and Beesley, Ill Behaviour stars Chris Geere (Waterloo Road), Tom Riley (Da Vinci’s Demons), Lizzy Caplan (Mean Girls), Jessica Regan (Call the Midwife), Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day) and John Gordon Sinclair (World War Z).

The story, which is directed by Steve Bendelack (Friday Night Dinner) and produced by Gill Isles (Peter Kay’s Car Share), looks at how far one would go to help a friend.

The Collection: sex, lies and high fashion in Canada on OUTtv

As mentioned in yesterday's post, it has now been confirmed that The Collection will broadcast on OUTtv in Canada in the spring, as 8 episodes. It will be interesting to know whether it will be the uncut UK version which is shown. For impatient Canadian fans, it seems that the show is already available for streaming on OUTtvGo.

VANCOUVER, BC – 14 FEBRUARY 2017 – OUTtv, Canada’s national LGBTQ television network, has licensed exclusive first window Canadian broadcast rights from BBC Worldwide North America for The Collection, an eight-episode drama series set in the world of haute couture. The series, written and created by award-winning showrunner Oliver Goldstick (Pretty Little Liars, Ugly Betty,) features Tom Riley (Da Vinci’s Demons, Kill Your Friends), Mamie Gummer (The Good Wife, Ricki and the Flash), Richard Coyle (Crossbones, Life of Crime) and Alix Poisson (Disparue, 3xManon, Parents mode d’emploi).

The Collection: opening titles video

The creator of the beautiful opening titles for The Collection has uploaded a video of them to Vimeo. Those who love the music may like to know that it is 'I Love Paris' by Cole Porter, sung by Etta James. The series score is by Dominik Scherrer. The Collection is available to watch on Amazon Prime USA and UK.

Oliver Goldstick tweeted that The Collection will be broadcast in Canada in the Spring. He didn't mention which channel will show it, but it seems that OutTV in Canada will be one channel, if their trailer for The Collection is correct. There is no mention of The Collection on the OutTV website yet.

The Collection: exceptional acting, breathtaking scenes, and gorgeous costumes

Bustle had some kind words to say about The Collection following the US launch on Amazon Prime last Friday, and was interested in knowing whether there would be a season 2. Good question - no news yet! The more people who watch and give positive feedback, the better chance there will be of renewal.

If you're looking for another gripping period drama to replace the void left by Mad Men after it finished up its run on AMC in 2015 (I have personally been searching since then), this new series may do just that. The Collection premieres on Amazon on Friday, Feb. 10, and it follows two brothers on their quest to build up their fashion house and help resuscitate Paris after World War II. This series seems to have everything you could ever want out of a period drama: exceptional acting, breathtaking scenes, and gorgeous costumes.

More positivity to be found on this website, too!

Ill Behaviour: new cast details

Nothing has yet been announced about Ill Behaviour by the BBC, even though filming finished last December. Despite this, Google is picking up news tit-bits, and some interesting cast members are being revealed through a very quick search. 

We already know that Tom is starring in the 3 part comedy drama (written and created by Sam Bain and directed by Steve Bendelack), though we have no idea of his character. Monroe co-star Chrissy Chong's name was also revealed last November, along with Jessica Regan and Anjana Vasan.

It would seem from updated agency CVs now appearing in searches, there's exciting news that Tom's fiancée Lizzy Caplan will be appearing as Nadia, John Gordon Sinclair as Talbot, and Joey Akubeze as Tony.
