Join the RTS on Monday 26th July for this behind the scenes look at the second series BBC One's comedy King Gary.
Co-creators Tom Davis, James De Frond along with cast members Laura Checkley, Romesh Ranganathan and Camille Coduri, join journalist Boyd Hilton for this in depth discussion into the making of the second series. Filled with clips and stories, this event is not to be missed.
King Gary Series Overview
King Gary, produced by Shiny Button, part of Banijay, follows Gary King (Tom Davis) and love-of-his-life Terri (Laura Checkley) as they bowl through family life in suburbia. The first series saw the couple handle minor crises at home, at work, on the local Little-League football pitch and even on Deliveroo, as only a pair of major drama queens can. Series Two will see Gary and Terri attempt to tie the knot, in a fashion fit only for the Kings. Meanwhile, Stuart learns that the only thing worse than having Gary and Terri as enemies is having them as friends - Gary and Stuart unite against a common enemy in the shape of nightmare new neighbour Aaron, while Terri is determined to matchmake Stuart with her mate Alison. The returning cast for series two includes Simon Day (The Fast Show), Camille Coduri (Him & Her), Neil Maskell (Humans) and Romesh Ranganathan (The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan). New faces joining the cast for series two include Morgan Watkins (Bulletproof) and Lily Brazier (People Just Do Nothing).
Co-creators Tom Davis and James De Frond say: “Following the incredible response for King Gary so far we’re buzzing to be back. It’s been great bringing back some of our favourite characters and throwing some new faces into the mix. We’ve been more ambitious with the storylines for this new series, we’ve been to some amazing locations and shot the royal wedding of the year. And all during a pandemic. We hope everyone loves it as much as we’ve loved making it.” Co-created and co-written by Tom Davis and James De Frond, the Executive producers are Tom Davis, James De Frond and Andy Brereton. Directed by James De Frond. Produced by Richard Webb. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Ben Caudell.
