New Sky Atlantic Comedy from Julia Davis


LONDON: Julia Davis, who's behind the hits Nighty Night and Hunderby, has written a new six-part comedy for Sky Atlantic, Robin's Test.

The comedy is about a group of couples on a birthday camping trip to Dorset. It stars Davis, alongside Rufus Jones (W1A), Vicki Pepperdine (Together) Steve Pemberton (Inside No.9), Jonathan Cake (Doll & Em), Liz Berrington (Stella) and David Bamber (Rome).

Before filming started on this new project, Davis wrote and starred in two Hunderby specials due to be aired on Sky Atlantic in December.

Davis commented: “I am very, very excited to be making another series for Sky Atlantic thanks to the great creative freedom and support of Zai Bennett and Lucy Lumsden."

Director of Sky Atlantic, Zai Bennett, added: “Known for grown-up storytelling and working with the best in the industry, Sky Atlantic is the perfect home for Julia Davis’s sublime work. Alongside drama Sky Atlantic is investing in top-flight, cinematic-quality comedy and Julia's new series is a great way to start the next year."
