Rich Fulcher to star in BBC Three Making a Murderer spoof
James R | On 27, Oct 2016
Rich Fulcher will star in Sexy Murder, a true-crime spoof from BBC Three.
The six-part satirical parody of Making a Murderer, The Jinx and Serial, will see “Televisionary” and “Truth Crusader” Christoph Spinelli (Fulcher) come to the UK to do for British Crime what he’s done for America – speculate to the point of insanity and manage to make a story out of absolutely nothing.
In search of a miscarriage of justice to defend, Spinelli’s documentary investigates the mysterious disappearance of Polly Worcester and her would-be attacker, Tom Jessop, with all the objectivity, truth and (most importantly) sexiness you would expect. Unfortunately for Tom, Spinelli is the last person you would want on your side.
Fulcher says: “This show is so sexy that I want to have sex with it.”
Produced by Roughcut TV, the show co-stars Nick Mohammed, Lolly Adefope, Shaun Williamson, Maggie O’Neill and James Gordon, alongside Daniel Barker, Phil Wang, Marcia Warren and Ewan Bailey.
It was commissioned by Damian Kavanagh, Controller BBC Three and Alex Moody, BBC Comedy, and will be released on Monday 31st October.
Ash Atalla, Executive Producer at Roughcut TV, says: “Roughcut, as well as having a growing sitcom business, is embracing fast turnaround short form projects like BBC Three’s Sexy Murder. It’s brilliant and silly and is a way of comedically reflecting the shows everyone is talking about.”
Sexy Murder is the latest BBC Three commission from Roughcut TV, following the success of mockumentary, People Just Do Nothing and Greg Davies and Taylor Lautner comedy, Cuckoo. The show is created by the team behind BBC Three’s Top Coppers, written by Andy Kinnear & Céin McGillicuddy and directed by Céin McGillicuddy.
