Steven Toast returning with more eccentric comedy
Channel 4 has commissioned a third, six-part series of the Rose D’Or winning comedy, Toast Of London starring Matt Berry.
Made by Objective Productions and again written by Berry and Arthur Mathews, the comedy stars Berry as Steven Toast, an eccentric actor with a chequered past who spends more time dealing with problems off stage than performing on it.
The supporting cast includes Doon Mackichan, Robert Bathurst, Tracy-Ann Oberman and Harry Peacock.
C4 Head of Comedy, Phil Clarke, said: “Channel 4 has always backed original comedy, the type of shows you wouldn’t find anywhere else, and Toast Of London represents a significant new chapter in that story, and in our comedy heritage. We are so proud to have the show, with its amazing cast and hilarious scripts. Matt Berry and Arthur Mathews have forged a dynamic new writing team, and I eagerly look forward to their next series.”
Andrew Newman, Executive Producer at Objective Productions commented, “Toast has been great fun to make and hilarious to watch, so we’re very excited that Channel 4 have commissioned another series.”
Toast Of London Series 3 starts filming in June for transmission on Channel 4 later in 2015.
