We are extremely proud and happy to announce that THE STUNT COMEDY SHOW created by Kasper Vejlø Kristensen & Deni Jordan and produced by Eyelight Productions in collaboration with Scandinavian Stunt Group has been sold to the Danish national television station Danmarks Radio (the Danish Broadcasting Corporation), who will add the show to their line-up on the dedicated youth channel DR Ultra. THE STUNT COMEDY SHOW on DR will be presented as 130 individual sketches throughout their program schedule for the next 2 years, running from January 1st, 2014.
Jakob Stegelmann of DR says: “Stunt Comedy Show is a very welcome revival of classic visual slapstick comedy with a contemporary touch – and a perfect addition to the lineup of comedy for older kids, 7-12 years, on our DR Ultra-channel. The mixture of short, character driven stories, straight-out comedy action and cartoonish gags is great, and the stunt work is excellent. DR Ultra is planning to air both the complete show and the segments, as well as exploiting the segments on our website.”
Additionally, THE STUNT COMEDY SHOW has been sold to both Russian, Malaysian, Namibian and South Korean markets as well as competing for “Best Sketch Show” at the Montreux Comedy Festival (B) next year. Earlier this year, THE STUNT COMEDY SHOW was nominated for “Best TV Pilot” at the Hoboken International Film Festival (USA) and “Best Comedy” at the ITVFest – Independent Television Festival in Vermont (USA).
