Rich Fulcher is set to star in a spoof murder case TV show for BBC Three.
As reported today by Chortle, Sexy Murder will parody the likes of popular true crime documentaries like Netflix’s hugely popular Making A Murderer. Rich will play ‘Televisionary’ and ‘Truth Crusader’ Christoph Spinelli, who’s come to the UK to do for British crime what he’s done in America, i.e. to speculate to the point of insanity and make a story out of nothing.
Rich has said of the programme: “This show is so sexy that I want to have sex with it.” Ahhh, Rich – this is why we love you.
The series consists of six five-minute episodes and will co-star Nick Mohammed and Lolly Adefope. Extras’ Shaun Williamson and former EastEnders actor Maggie O’Neill will also feature, along with Phil Wang, Daniel Barker, Marcia Warren, James Gordon and Ewan Bailey.
Céin McGillicuddy and Andy Kinnear share writing responsibilities (McGillicuddy also directs), and Bertie Peek produced the show. McGillicuddy and Peek previously worked with Rich on BBC Three’s police spoof, Top Coppers.
Fulcher fans don’t have long to wait either! According to reports, the show will be available on BBC Three and the channel’s YouTube page from Monday, 31st October. We haven’t been able to get any further details about the precise time of its arrival, however.
