Bob Martin (ITV 2000-2001 with Michael Barrymore and Denis Lawson)

UK / ITV – Granada / 12×60 minute episodes / Broadcast 2 April 2000 – 4 June 2001

Writers/Producers: Bob Mills, Jeff Pope / Music: Graham Jarvis / Costume: Janet Benge / Executive Producer: Andy Harries / Director: Tony Dow

Comedy drama series. Top game show host Bob Martin is not so cocksure off screen (but is alos prepared to stop at nothing to get what he wants).

Very Larry Sanders, and also heavily influenced by comedian Bob Mills’ previous attempt to do a real Larry Sanders, this was called The Show. There were lots of good quality guest appearances too from the likes of Lynda Bellingham, Cheryl Baker, Julia Sawalha, Terry Wogan, Anthea Turner, Clive Anderson, Michael Aspel and Isla Fisher. Also the episode titles were all named after different TV shows.
