You’re probably wondering why we’ve been so quiet in the last couple of months… (No?)
In collaboration with Brother Brother and Leila Sykes, we’ve been quietly developing a brand-spanking new online show: Missing Something. It’s a witty glimpse into the farcically bizarre world of Rachel, a twenty-something in London, working at a chaotic game design studio.
We see it as a good-old-fashioned British sitcom… with a slight twist. It’s being broadcast on the internet, and each episode is only 3-minutes long.
So far, we’ve made a pilot episode (see below), and are raising money for a two-week shoot in May. It’s great to be at the forefront of a new format, and take part in a new distribution and funding method. This is a very exciting new direction for Three’s Company. We’ve come a long way since our first play at the Buxton Fringe…
Yaz and his brother Haroun are directing. Tom is co-writing with Leila Sykes. Yaz is also playing the part of Aaron, and Tom will be returning as lovable tour guide extraordinaire Cuth McWildered! You’ll find tons of other Three’s Company regulars onscreen, including:
- Leila Sykes, from The World’s Greatest Walking Tour Of Edinburgh and Romeo & Juliet
- Ashlea Kaye, from Reverie, and who founded Smooth Faced Gentlemen with us.
- Scott Wilson-Besgrove, from our award-winning five-minute play None Of The Above
- Francesca Binefa, who first worked with us on The Importance of Being Frank
- Amr El-Bayoumi, from Auditorium and Loose End
- Rumoured appearances from Mariam Bell, Will Nightingale, Kayleigh McDonald, and a chappy called Michael Grady-Hall.
We had a great time making it, and we’re really proud. So please watch the pilot, below, and let us know what you think!
On the same page, you can also read loads more detail about our plans for the series. This is new to us, and we’d really appreciate any comments, or even just knowing whether you think it sounds like a good idea.
But there’s another way you can help…
We’re asking for support to make the series happen. Anything at all that you can pledge will make a huge difference, so please consider making a donation.
