C5 lines up Paul Merton comedy doc

ViacomCBS-owned UK terrestrial Channel 5 has ordered one-off documentary Paul Merton’s Comic Heroes from London-based indie Spun Gold TV.

Paul Merton

The 1×120’ doc will see the British comedian explore what motivated the UK’s greatest comics, how and why they became successful and what inspired their best moments and characters.

Using archive footage, Merton examines how comedians and comedy actors from Charlie Chaplin to Victoria Wood used their gift of the gab and sense of humour to break through thanks to sheer hard work and ability.

Paul Merton’s Comic Heroes is produced by Spun Gold TV and executive produced by Lee Connolly, with Sue Andrew on board as producer. All3Media International is handling distribution.
