The Goes Wrong Show Debuts On Amazon Prime

Who could forget those guys from outrageous theatre comedy The Play That Goes Wrong?

Performing gravity-defying slapstick stunts that had New Zealand audiences in stitches, they’re back, this time on our screens.

They’ve produced six episodes of The Goes Wrong Show for BBC One and, while we can’t have them in the flesh at the moment, we can tune into this hit series on Amazon Prime Video.

Principal cast available for interview from London this week (or anytime thereafter that suits). Please contact Sandra Roberts to request interview.

Inspired by Mischief’s award-winning Broadway and West End stage production, The Play That Goes Wrong, The Goes Wrong Show television series debuted in the UK to widespread acclaim and recently received a 2020 TV Choice Award nomination for Best Comedy.

The Goes Wrong Show is written by and stars the original founding Mischief Theatre members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, alongside Nancy Zamit, Charlie Russell, Bryony Corrigan, Greg Tannahill, Dave Hearn and Chris Leask. 

Every week, the well-meaning amateurs of the Cornley Dramatic Society perform a half-hour play – live in front of a studio audience: a horror story, a wartime drama, a legal thriller, a period romance, a deep south melodrama and a Christmas fable. And every week, the performance goes terribly, terribly wrong. Sets collapse, special effects fail and actors forget their lines but the show must go on. The Goes Wrong Show is simply Mischief Theatre's biggest disaster yet. 

The Mischief team also adapted both Peter Pan Goes Wrong for BBC One in December 2016 and created A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong starring Diana Rigg and Derek Jacobi, which aired on BBC One in December 2017. 

The Goes Wrong Show is a Mischief Screen/Big Talk production in association with Lionsgate and YTD HK. The show is produced by Jim Poyser and directed by Martin Dennis. The Executive Producers are Hilary Strong and Kenny Wax for Mischief Screen, Kenton Allen, Saurabh Kakkar and Matthew Justice for Big Talk Productions and the series is commissioned by Shane Allen, Controller of BBC Comedy, Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content and Kate Daughton, Commissioning Editor for the BBC.
