Sky Atlantic has given the go ahead to a six episode comedy written, directed by and starring Julia Davis, through Baby Cow Productions.
Robin’s Test tells the story of a group of couples on a birthday camping trip to Dorset. However, the weekend quickly unravels when party girl Fay (Davis) arrives with the newly separated Tom (fellow TVO-er and Hunderby co-star, Rufus Jones – here rocking a powerful double denim look). The show also features Vicki Pepperdine, Steve Pemberton, Jonathan Cake, Liz Berrington and David Bamber in the main cast.
Sky Atlantic Director, Zai Bennett, commissioned Robin’s Test alongside former Head of Comedy, Lucy Lumsden. He has said of the new series: “Known for grown-up storytelling and working with the best in the industry, Sky Atlantic is the perfect home for Julia Davis’s sublime work”
By way of response, Julia has said: “I am very, very excited to be making another series for Sky Atlantic thanks to the great creative freedom and support of Zai Bennett and Lucy Lumsden.”
We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we have any transmission details for the show.
