‘Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains’ for Comedy Central
Comedy Central has commissioned Rumpus Media to make a series fronted by Rhod Gilbert, in which celebrity guests will attempt to convince the Welsh comedian that their teenage years were the most cringeworthy.
The six-part series which will begin shooting later this month, Covid-19 restrictions allowing, will see celebrities traverse subjects including fashion, pop culture, retro gadgets, and first loves as they reflect on their formative years.
Sebastian Cardwell, deputy director of programs at ViacomCBS Networks UK, commissioned the series, while Rumpus’ Iain Wimbush is the executive producer. Rumpus’ other work includes The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan.
