New Season of BBC-3 Comedy Murder in Successville Begins Filming

Comedy entertainment show Murder in Successvillehas just begun filming its third season for broadcast on BBC Three with Tom Davis back as DI Sleet to solve more crimes against the world of celebrity alongside new rookie recruits Professor Green, Richard Osman and Reggie Yates.

Filming has commenced on series three of BBC Three’s unique improv comedy format, Murder In Successville.

The comedy entertainment show is led by Tom Davis (BAFTA Burberry Hotshot 2016) who plays DI Sleet, a hapless yet loveable detective investigating a crime. Each episode a guest celebrity joins him to solve the crime, without a script to follow and no idea what awaits them. The series will return with six more episodes this year, and so far stars taking part are confirmed as Professor Green, Richard Osman, and Reggie Yates.

The new run follows two series broadcast in 2015 and 2016, both of which won considerable critical and audience acclaim. More names will be announced in due course.

Tom Davis says: “I’m over the moon to be jumping in my Capri gear and heading back to Successville, it’s time to serve up a justice burger with a side order of fun with five brand new sidekicks.”

Damian Kavanagh, Controller, BBC Three says: “How exciting! I’m sure fans of this hit BBC Three show will be thrilled to hear that DI Sleet is heading back to Successville with a new cohort of sidekicks to investigate more crimes.”

Pinki Chambers, BBC commissioning editor for the series says: “Expect much hilarity as our celebrities become rookie police officers and put their sleuthing skills to the test.”

Executive producer Andy Brereton confirms “Yes – Murder In Successville is indeed back and D.I. Sleet is returning to the crime-ridden streets of Successville with a brand new crop of celebrity sidekicks.”

DI Sleet and his sidekicks will be joined by a resident cast of top comedy names including Kerry Howard, Luke Kempner, Colin Hoult, Cariad Lloyd and many more.

The series is commissioned by Damian Kavanagh, Controller, BBC Three and Pinki Chambers, commissioning editor for BBC Entertainment. It is produced by Tiger Aspect, with executive producer Andy Brereton, series producer Avril Spary and director James de Frond.
