“I will be at MIPCOM to meet everyone,” she tells TBI. “People need content, and there are so many digital platforms now and so many secondary markets.”
Ullman, who has had several TV successes in the US, where she is based, says her Anglo-American perspective will become clear in the new show. “I think I am a hybrid of America and England,” she says. “I’ve done several shows in America, and they have been a mix of characters and things from the zeitgeist. Each episode of the new show encompasses a day in the UK, where people come and go, from dawn to dusk.”
Tracey Ullman’s Show marks the comedian’s comeback to British TV. The BBC is producing the six-parter in-house alongside Allan McKeown Presents.
DRG, which sells Ullman’s Showtime shows, is handling international sales and will launch the series at MIPCOM. Ullman will meet buyers and press at the market.
DRG, which is now part of the Modern Times Group, will be shopping her series alongside its other comedy offerings including Peep Show, Detectorists and Delivery Man.
