Sky's best comedy launch in seven years

Sky One series Brassic has become the channel’s highest-rated comedy show in more than seven years.

More than 1.6million viewers have watched the opening episode in the first seven days, making it the biggest launch since Ruth Jones’s Stella in 2012.

All six episodes have also been released on Now TV, and been downloaded 3.5 million times.  

Co-created by writer Danny Brocklehurst and actor Joseph Gilgun, who co-stars with Michelle Keegan  –  Brassic is produced by Calamity Films, who have already been commissioned to make a second series, which has just started filming.   

Chief executive David Livingstone, said; ‘We’re delighted that audiences have embraced Brassic. The incredible stories behind this motley crew of friends, so expertly crafted by Joe and Danny, have been a total joy to bring to life, and we’re hugely proud of the show.  

‘And with series two currently in production, we can’t wait to share more of their story.’
