Alan Carr to Host There’s Something About Movies for Sky One


Sky original production There’s Something About Movies, a brand-new celebrity panel show, is set to launch on Sky One in May with Alan Carr as host.

Produced by Red Arrow Studios’ CPL Productions and Motion Content Group, There’s Something About Movies will see Carr invite some of the U.K.’s favorite actors and comics to put their film trivia and blockbuster knowledge to the test. The six-part series will be filmed in front of a live studio audience. It’s set to bow on Sky One on Thursday, May 2, and also will be available via the streaming service NOW TV.

Phil Edgar-Jones, head of entertainment at Sky, said: “We are somewhere over the rainbow with excitement to have Alan Carr taking a leading role in There’s Something About Movies. It feels like a show only Sky could make and we aim to do for films what A League of their Own has done for sport… make it funny!”

Carr added: “Super excited to be hosting There’s Something About Movies—with the unique mix of famous comedy faces and actual movie stars on a one-panel show together, it’s going to be must-see TV. Grab your popcorn as we test the stars on their cinema knowledge, get all the Hollywood gossip behind the scenes, and with some acting master classes, I see if I’ve got what it takes to make it in tinsel town (spoiler alert—I haven’t). It’s going to be so much fun.”
