Series info and storyline

Murder in Successville is a British sitcom with improvisational elements, which was created by Andy Brereton and Avril Spary and executive produced by Brereton and Pinki Chambers. The show has been broadcast on now digital-only BBC Three channel since 2015. The second season of the program, which hails from Tiger Aspect Productions, has aired on June 15, 2016.

DI Sleet (Tom Davis) is paired up with a different guest celebrity in each episode for a murder investigation. Cast members for every episode include up-and-coming comic impersonators of fictionalized versions of different celebrities. Highly fictionalized versions, we must say, for example, Gordon Ramsay serves as the police chief, Taylor Swift is the forensics expert, Alan and Jimmy Carr are twin mobsters in the town of Successville. The cast includes Liam Hourican, Luke Kempner, Cariad Lloyd, Colin Hoult, Jenny Bede, Tony Way, Rachel Parris, Marie Lawrence and many others.

Viewership and renewal prospects

The show has a 7.4/10 IMDb rating and was a very unlikely candidate for becoming a television hit – but it did! It courageously mixes a cop show spoof with reality TV, comedy and a prank show, and what comes out it surprisingly coherent and fun. The weekly celebrity is not made familiar with the script, and have to improvise their dialogue as they go along in the investigation. The second series celebrity roster includes George Shelley (Union J), Chris Kamara (Sky Sports), Mark Wright (Towie), and Baby Spice Emma Bunton. Stay tuned, and we`ll let you know as soon as the network makes a decision on the show`s future.
