BBC Three comedy series Uncle has been recommissioned for a third series.

Starring Nick Helm and Elliot Speller-Gillot (pictured), the 7 x 30 minute series follows out-of-work musician Andy, who forges an unlikely alliance with his teenage nephew Errol, and their often misguided comedy adventures.

Nick Helm says: “Uncle is more than a show about an unconventional family unit. The whole production is like a family, from Russell on sound and Terry on Rocky Road duties, to Ali producing and keeping everything ticking like clockwork, Oli and Lilah who write and direct the show and music videos and Daisy and Elliot who, whilst playing my fake TV family, end up substituting my actual family for seven weeks a year. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the new series has got in store and getting the ‘Family’ back together again.”

Uncle is produced by Baby Cow Productions; written by Oliver Refson & Lilah Vandenburgh, and directed by Oliver Refson.

Alison MacPhail, Producer, Baby Cow Productions, says: “We’re thrilled to be working with Oliver Refson and Lilah Vandenburgh again, and very much look forward to our next family outing with Nick Helm, Daisy Haggard and Elliot Speller-Gillott. It really is as much fun as it looks working on this show, and we are delighted to have a third series commissioned.”
