BBC Two comedy Whites axed
BBC Two comedy Whites starring Alan Davies as Chef Roland White, has been cancelled.
BBC Two comedy Whites starring Alan Davies as Chef Roland White, has been cancelled. The comedy starred Davies alongside Katherine Parkinson, Darren Boyd and Isy Suttie and written by Matt King and Oliver Lansley. The comedy met with mixed reviews when it aired on BBC Two last year but had respectable ratings. However, despite its reasonable performance the comedy has not been renewed for a second series. On Twitter Davies described the cancellation as ‘the worst news I’ve had in my whole career’.
Budget cut backs at the BBC are likely to be the reason for Whites axing. The BBC has recently renewed fellow comedies Episodes and Miranda which is being promoted to BBC One. Sketch show Harry & Paul, which moved from BBC One to BBC Two, starring Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse has also been cancelled.
