Outstanding in his field

LITV Studios has acquired the international distribution rights to Leopard Pictures’ Worzel Gummidge and Roadshow Rough Diamond’s Bump ahead of its inaugural ITV Studios Fall Festival. A ratings success for the BBC and adored by viewers and critics alike, Worzel Gummidge is a star-studded modern adaptation of Barbara Euphan Todd’s glorious stories. BAFTA winner Mackenzie Crook (Detectorists, The Office, Pirates of the Caribbean) – who also writes and directs – stars as the charming and irreverent scarecrow who mysteriously comes to life, alongside Michael Palin (The Death of Stalin, Monty Python), Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone), Vicki Pepperdine, Steve Pemberton and Rosie Cavaliero (Gentleman Jack). Based on the much-loved children’s books and 80s TV series, Worzel Gummidge is a drama infused with a fun, mischievous spirit and delivered with a timely environmental message – the perfect family treat for viewers of all ages.
