Whizz Kid adapts ‘woke’ satire

Andrew Doyle

UK-based Whizz Kid Entertainment has taken TV rights to a satirical comedy character created by comedian and writer Andrew Doyle.

The firm is already in talks with a “major broadcaster” to adapt Doyle’s book Woke: Titania McGrath’s Guide to Social Justice for television, according to the company.

The book follows a “radical poet and activist” who is “uniquely placed to guide her viewers through the often-bewildering array of terminology and concepts that constitute 21st century ‘wokeness.'”

Whizz Kid Entertainment is majority-owned by Entertainment One and is behind productions such as Ex On The Beach (MTV International), Jonathan Pie’s American Pie (BBC3) and Lip Sync Battle UK (Channel 5).
