On-Screen Advent Adventure: Day Two

The BBC have today announced a number of new television projects set to enter production and broadcast in 2014. These include several recommissioned series, as well as a couple of original programmes premièring for the first time next year.

Here's the full round-up of what BBC One director Charlotte Moore announced at today's press conference:

  • BIG SCHOOL- Firstly, David Walliams' situation comedy Big School has been recommissioned for a second series of six episodes. Starring Walliams, Catherine Tate and Philip Glenister, the show amassed respectable ratings in its initial run, and will return for Season Two in Autumn 2014.
  • CITIZEN KHAN- Another acclaimed sitcom from the Beeb, Citizen Khan will also be back for a third series on BBC One. Following a new Christmas Special launching on December 20th, Season Three will broadcast in Summer 2014.
  • OUR GIRL- Few would have predicted quite how successful Lacey Turner's one-off military drama Our Girl would become upon its initial broadcast. As such, the programme has been expanded into a five-part series, due to air in Summer 2014.
  • INSIDE KFC- The new commissions weren't all based around comedy, however. Inside KFC is a three-part documentary investigating the functions of the titular fast-food chain both in the UK and internationally. The first episode of the run will broadcast in Summer 2014.
For all the latest news, previews and reviews of BBC programming, keep it On-Screen in the weeks ahead!
