Tim Renkow comedy gets full series


Tim Renkow‘s BBC Three Comedy Feed, A Brief History of Tim, has been commissioned for a 4×22’ series.

Written by Tim and Stu Richards, A Brief History of Tim follows Tim, who has cerebral palsy, a condition that makes people assume he’s a sweet humble man, a victim. Wrong. Tim’s one of life’s rebels. He doesn’t take life seriously, why should he when he knows his condition means he can get away with saying whatever he wants. Problem is, Tim lets the fun get in the way of actually achieving anything.

Across the series we follow Tim as he navigates the politically-correct modern world, resisting temptation at every turn to offend and ridicule a situation. He just can’t help it. Like Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm, Tim is his own worst enemy and despite the efforts of friends and his tough supportive mum he’s determined to make life harder than it need be.

Tim Renkow says: “I’m very excited to be working with the BBC. I just hope I can beat my old employment record of two days.”

Damian Kavanagh, Controller, BBC Three says: “We are all about the best new British comedy at BBC Three and are very happy to give A Brief History Of Tim a home.”

Ash Atalla, Managing Director of Roughcut says: “Tim is one of the best and most wrong comedians I’ve ever met. For that reason alone, Roughcut can’t wait to work with him on this BBC sitcom.“

Alex Smith, executive producer says: “Roughcut is thrilled to be taking on Tim’s show and look forward to channelling his irreverent voice into a brilliant and original sitcom character.“

A Brief History Of Tim is a Roughcut TV and Primal Media production and will air on BBC Three.
