Re-introducing… The Intro’s round!
A first-look clip has today been released of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, the iconic pop culture panel show, which will soon be returning exclusively to Sky Max and streaming service NOW as a Sky Original. The exclusive sneak peek reveals that the much-loved ‘Intros’ round will be making a comeback to the new series. The line-up of guests featured in the clip include Little Mix’s Jade Thirwall, music artist Anne Marie, and comedian Nish Kumar – just a selection of some of the unmissable guests that appear on the upcoming series.
The renowned music themed comedy show will return to our screens as an 8 x 45’ series, plus a one-off Christmas special, with brand new host Greg Davies (Taskmaster, Man Down). The Sky Original will air this autumn on Sky and streaming service NOW and is produced by Talkback (a Fremantle label), the production company behind all previous series of Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
Returning to the show, Noel Fielding (The Mighty Boosh, The Great British Bake Off) will be a team captain opposite Daisy May Cooper (This Country), with Jamali Maddix (Hate Thy Neighbour) featuring as a regular guest. Each week they will be joined by a roster of top music and comedy stars to compete against each other. Viewers can expect the unpredictability of the original series, with some of the best known and loved rounds remaining, alongside some new surprises thrown in along the way.
Never Mind the Buzzcocks was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky and Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment at Sky. Shirley Jones is the Commissioning Editor. The series is produced by Talkback (a Fremantle label) and Executive Produced by Kate Edmunds and Jonno Richards, Managing Director of Talkback.
