Barratt in La La Land

31 Mar

Julian Barratt is lined up to be the narrator of La La Land when it airs in the UK.

The cult US TV show, La la Land is being remade for broadcast in the UK on BBC3 and DVD, according to comedy writer and performer, Marc Wootton. Wootton features in the US TV show, but has said that the UK version will differ from its US parent.

Sadly that’s all we’ve been able to find out for now, but as soon as we hear any more about the plans for Barratt’s silky northern tones, we’ll let you know.

Thanks to Becky for this story.
