Amazon picks up Goes Wrong Show

L-R: Goes Wrong Show stars Henry Shields, Jonathan Burke and Henry Lewis

Amazon Prime Video is to launch all six episodes of Mischief’s BBC1 comedy series The Goes Wrong Show in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

The series is inspired by Mischief’s Broadway and West End stage production The Play that Goes Wrong and will launch on the streamer on August 15 after being acquired from Lionsgate.

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

It follows the well-meaning amateurs of the Cornley Dramatic Society as they attempt to put on a series of terrible TV plays, all of which end in disaster – live in front of a studio audience.

The show came after the Mischief team adapted their stage production Peter Pan Goes Wrong in December 2016 and created A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong in December 2017, both for BBC1.

The Goes Wrong Show is a Mischief Screen/Big Talk production in association with Lionsgate and YTD HK.

The series is produced by Jim Poyser and directed by Martin Dennis. The executive producers are Hilary Strong and Kenny Wax for Mischief Screen, alongside Kenton Allen, Saurabh Kakkar and Matthew Justice for Big Talk Productions.

The series was commissioned by Shane Allen, controller of BBC comedy; Charlotte Moore, director of BBC content; and Kate Daughton, commissioning editor for the BBC.
