Fresh excerpts from Splendid – the non-broadcast pilot made by Richard Glover and Stephen Evans – have emerged online.
Devised by Glover and director Dan Turner (Stormhouse, The Man Inside), back in 2009, with a writing staff including Jason Arnopp, Piers Beckley and the cast.
Sadly, it seems as many pilots often do in those fallow periods for alternative comedy, the show was not commissioned – though clips appeared on Funny Or Die some time ago… just click here to see Glover jollier than you may ever have before or will again!
Now, as interest in the pilot grows again – presumably part of the great new wave comedic resurgence spearheaded by Sky’s recent investments, which other broadcasters seem suddenly keen to investigate once more – more clips have emerged online via Stephen Evans.
The first three of these, including an appearance by John Hopkins, are below. Enjoy.
