Following a hugely successful launch series* last year, ITV has commissioned a second series of The Keith and Paddy Picture Show from Talkback (part of FremantleMedia UK). Starring both Keith Lemon (Celebrity Juice, Through the Keyhole) and Paddy McGuinness (Take Me Out) the 6×30’ series will air on ITV primetime, Spring 2018.
The Keith and Paddy Picture Show is an affectionate and humorous tribute to some of Keith and Paddy’s favourite movies of all time. Each week, Keith and Paddy attempt to recreate an iconic film, with the help of an all-star celebrity cast.
The half hour episodes are a mix of high-end film parodies and behind-the-scenes mock-doc footage following the boys as they endeavour to bring their recreations to life. Films this series include:
Keith Lemon said: “So excited to be back doing The Keith & Paddy Picture show! So much fun working with ya mate in real life, living the dream playing roles in classic films we love. The catering is amazing too!”
Paddy McGuinness continues: “I can’t wait to start on the second series with Keith. The films we’re recreating this time round are some of the most iconic in cinema history. I’m mega excited to be playing dress up again with my mate. Let the fun and games begin!”
Leon Wilson, executive producer and Managing Director of Talkback Thames added: “We’re delighted to be returning for a second series for more movie mayhem. Last series saw stars such as Robbie Williams, Phillip Schofield, Sarah Parish, Anna Friel and Stephen Tompkinson taking on iconic film roles, and we have more soon-to-be-announced exciting guests joining us for this series. Saturday night is definitely movie night!”
