MCM Birmingham makes way for new ITV2 comedy spy spoof Action Team
Main Stage, Sunday, 13:00-13:45
If you thought you were safe in the hands of Superman, Thor or even James Bond – think again. The latest and bravest superhero arrives in the (very) unlikely form of Logan, an MI6 agent who specialises in comical endeavours and collateral damage.
Played by Tom Davis (Plebs, The Keith Lemon Show, Murder in Successville), Logan leads a top-secret team of special agents working for the British government – charged with saving the world in this spoof spy action-thriller series, Action Team. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you won’t believe what you’ve seen.
Think: The Bourne Identity meets The Naked Gun.
Want a fast-paced show, with high concept and crammed with silly jokes? Then you’ve come to the right place. MCM are excited to announce that the crew and cast behind this side-splittingly funny series are coming to MCM Birmingham Comic Con!
Go behind the scenes of ITV2’s big scale comedy featuring a dysfunctional group of spies when Tom Davis takes to the Main Stage on Sunday at 14:00, alongside Derek Riddlell (The Missing, Hard Sun), Laura Checkley (Cradle to Grave, Bridget Jones’s Baby), Jim Howick (Horrible Histories, Broadchurch), producer Andy Brereton, and co-writer and director James De Frond as they discuss this crazy creation.
For those who just can’t wait…aren’t you in luck? The first two episodes air tonight on ITV2 at 10pm! Here’s a sneak peek…
Action Team is a Shiny Button production, written by Tom Davis and James De Frond, produced by Andy Brereton and directed by James De Frond. Action Team has been commissioned for ITV2 by Paul Mortimer, director of Digital Channels and Saskia Schuster, ITV’s comedy commissioner.
