The Scum Also Rises News Posted by John Hoare on 26th May 2007, 09:54 Sitcom pilot. BBC THREE. This coming Monday, at 9:30pm. Featuring Adam Buxton – and directed by Tim Kirkby, who directed Look Around You. Oh yeah, and it also stars CHRIS BARRIE. Listing is as follows: Stealing Happiness: Set in the successful ad agency HHH&H, the series focuses on creative Billy, who is suffering from writer’s block, an account executive and a neurotic producer. I have no idea whether this will be any good or not – BBC THREE hardly have a great track record with sitcoms (although I liked Swiss Toni, and five doesn’t have a great record either, but came up with the brilliant Respectable) – but Chris Barrie returning to sitcom? I’m there. Thanks again to Jonsmad for the info. What a nice guy.
