Ian Fletcher to return with more W1A

by | Sep 15, 2014 | All, TV News

The BBC today announces that Ian Fletcher, Head of Values, will be allowing cameras into New Broadcasting House again early next year for another series of W1A, following his day-to-day problem creating and solving abilities.

Until the cameras roll it won’t be known exactly what crisis will be averted or indeed where Ian’s desk will be. It can be assumed that he will once again have the unavoidable benefit of PR company Perfect Curve’s high standards of clarity and presentational skills when it comes to the key issues facing the Corporation.

And with Charter Renewal in 2016 getting ever closer, Ian’s job as Chair of the Way Ahead Task Force will be even more important than ever.

Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning, says: “There’s an all-too-painful yet comedic delight in John’s ability to pick away at the scab of modern corporate piffle and bureaucratic absurdity. We can’t wait to see what dysfunctional madness lies ahead for Ian Fletcher and colleagues in this sly fiction.”

Kim Shillinglaw, Controller, BBC Two, says: “I can’t wait for the return of W1A next year. Brilliantly authored comedy, featuring some of our brightest talent, is central to BBC Two and this series, alongside the return of The Wrong Mans and new series Boy Meets Girl, the Javone Prince Show and the arrival of Backchat and Russell Howard’s Good News, demonstrates the exciting range of comedy we have coming up on the channel.”
