Jupp's kitchen comedy could head to TV
Pilot adapted from his Radio 4 show
Miles Jupp’s Radio 4 comedy In And Out Of The Kitchen is being adapted for television.
A pilot has recently been shot and BBC executives are now deciding whether it should be picked up for a full series.
They have no particular channel in mind yet, a corporation press officer told Chortle.
Two series have been made for Radio 4, which aired in late 2011 and early this year. In the show Jupp – who also wrote the script – plays a gay cookery writer, Damien Trench, who details his daily life through a mix of narrative, dialogue and recipes.
It was praised by critics, with the Daily Telegraph calling it ‘irresistible’; the Independent on Sunday saying it was ‘a beautifully written delight’ and The Stage finding it ‘delicious’.
Jupp’s agent confirmed that a pilot had been shot, but that there was no word on whether it would be transmitted, or picked up for a series.
Jupp is already a familiar face to TV viewers, having regularly appeared in Rev, The Thick Of It, Spy and Gary: Tank Commander.
