Coogan and Brydon take The Trip to Sky Atlantic.
Hit comedy series The Trip is moving to Sky Atlantic.
After two successful series on BBC Two, the third series of the show will see
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon travel to Spain, as they head off from the North
Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast, playing exaggerated versions of themselves.
The second series aid on BBC Two in 2014 but Coogan’s production Baby Cow will
now work with Sky Atlantic, which also broadcasts Alan Partridge’s Mid Morning
"Having thought long and hard about yet another sojourn into culinary
distractions and middle age, I have reluctantly agreed to Eviva Espana," said
Coogan. "I have a hole in my diary, there will be free food and accommodation
and Rob Brydon is surprisingly good company. I also like Michael."
Zai Bennett, director of Sky Atlantic, said: "The Trip is as close to perfection
as you get in comedy. It's a rare chance to watch comic masters, totally
authoring their work with creative freedom.
"It's an absolutely perfect fit for Sky Atlantic. We are very happy to ensure
that this award-winning comedy will continue building on the channel's
relationships with Steve, Rob and Revolution Films showcasing our continued
investment in top-flight original comedy."
The new series is likely to air next year.
