ITV renews Sorry, I Didn’t Know

Sorry, I Didn’t Know host Jimmy Akingbola

UK commercial broadcaster ITV and producer TriForce Productions have launched a competition to find new writers for the comedy panel show about Black history, Sorry, I Didn’t Know, following its recommission.

Jimmy Akingbola will return to host the new season of the show, which will air in October on ITV and ITV Hub as part of ITV’s Black History Month celebrations. Chizzy Akudolu and Judi Love will return as team leaders.

TriForce Productions is currently looking for new writers to join showrunner Fraser Ayres in the series writing room.

The opportunity will be open to anyone in a drive to find a new wave of comedy writers and give them their first broadcast credit.

The show, created by Minnie and Fraser Ayres, is commissioned by Joe Mace and Gemma John-Lewis at ITV entertainment commissioning.

“The world of writing for comedy panel shows is incredibly difficult to break into, so we’re opening up the doors to find writing talent that might not usually get this opportunity. We don’t care what you’ve done before, or whether you have an agent – we just want to find people who are funny, passionate and love Black history to go on this exciting journey with us,” said Fraser Ayres.

Mace, ITV commissioning editor for entertainment, said: “After last year’s successful debut, we’ve expanded the show to five episodes and can’t wait to welcome new writers onto the team.”
