Lucy Pearman creates BBC pilot Please Help Me – News
Lucy Pearman wrote and stars in Please Help Me, a Comedy Threesome pilot coming to BBC iPlayer later this year.
The fifteen minute comedy has just finished filming on location in Oxfordshire.
It follows the story of “a normal girl living and working on a remote farm in Oxfordshire who is trapped in a mundane and claustrophobic life as her grandmother’s sole caregiver. As life becomes more and more more tense, she develops bizarre and inexplicable magical powers that make her absolutely NOT normal anymore. “
The episode also stars Anna Calder-Marshall, Harry Peacock, David Mumeni, and Edward Bluemel.
Mr Bean’s producers, Tiger Aspect, are working on the project.
Lucy Pearman says: “I’m very excited and I’m also scared to write and create a project for the BBC with Tiger Aspect. I can’t believe how involved the administrator is in making 15 minutes of television but I have the time of my life. I have an amazing cast and crew and I can finally work with a Shetland pony, what more could you ask for. “
David Simpson of Tiger Aspect says, “Lucy is a true original. Her screenplay is brilliantly crafted and at the same time warm and charming and extremely funny. We can’t wait for people to see it.”
BBC Editor-in-Chief Ben Caudell adds: “Lucy is an absurd author who has given us an exciting piece of comic magical realism that defies categorization, even if I have just called it comic magical realism. an absolute joy to be tangentially involved, not least because I send emails with the subject line ‘PLEASE HELP ME’ and it’s a simple work email rather than my regular desperate call to urgent assistance. “
