Damian O’Hare in new TV series: “Taking the Flak” on BBC2 (2009)

Scheduled first for early 2008 and now for spring 2009, BBC2 will bring you a six-episode-comedy called “Taking the Flak”. Damian will be in (at least?) one episode. The show is currently filmed on location in Africa.

What’s it all about?

“Taking The Flak is an acerbic comedy following the progress of a small African war, as seen through the eyes of a team of journalists sending back the nightly reports from the BBC “Ten”.

“Starring Doon Mackichan (Smack The Pony) and Martin Jarvis (Titanic), among others, with guest appearances from George Alagiah, Sophie Raworth and Dermot Murnaghan, it is a synthesis of news and narrative comedy, shot by an award-winning news cameraman entirely on location in Kenya.”

That’s all we know so far; please keep in mind that schedules might change at any time. And as we’re already talking about “schedules”: “The Royal” is now supposed to return on 5th October rather than by the end of September.
