New commissions

We’re easing the disappointment of all those cancelled comedy gigs with a series of comedy shorts from the homes of your favourite comedians with Remote Comedy from The Paddock. We’re talking mental health and mindfulness with the big names in Grime for new online commission, Grime Therapy W/T, and going back to the heart-warming, technology-free basics of letter writing to follow the stories of four extraordinary young people and two well-known faces, with short form online series, Letters in Lockdown.

Navi Lamba, Digital Commissioning Exec for E4 said: “It’s been so brilliant harnessing all the creativity the lockdown has inspired in our indie partners. We’ve commissioned across a number of genres and a mixture of animation and live action, hearing the stories of real people across the country and those of well-known faces in comedy, music and TV and all are tailored to work best for our young audiences across All 4, YouTube and social media.”
