Halfway is a comedy pilot commissioned by Comedy Development Executive Paul Forde at BBC Cymru Wales. New writer Sion Edwards came up with the idea and after working closely with Small and Clever to develop the pilot, Sion wrote six episodes which all stand alone but also have a storyline which gets resolved in the final episode. The pilot was directed by Darragh Mortell and photographed by Chris McGaughey. Small and Clever MD Phillip Moss produced. This sitcom, set in a burger van on a lonely road, got its first outing as a series of 6x5minute episodes, shown on BBC Two Wales in October 2018. A compilation episode was also tx’d on BBC Two Wales, available across the UK until December 2018 on BBC iPlayer.
Shot on three gloriously sunny late September days on location in Treorchy, South Wales, Halfway is the story of a burger van with fewer customers than stars on its food rating. Carol (Laura Dalgleish), husband Dave (Rhodri Evan) and co-worker Lucy (Kristy Philipps) all have different ways of making it through the day - for Carol it’s getting on the phone to the mysterious George, for Dave it’s viewing exploding gas bottles on YouTube and for Lucy, it’s looking after her new pet caterpillar Derek.
We're making a comedy pilot for a major broadcaster - there will be more news to come about this exciting project soon.
Following our successful arts-based programme commissions, we're very pleased to be able to say that Small and Clever have been commissioned to make a one-off special about an iconic Welsh sporting story, which will TX on BBC One in 2019.
We'll be having a busy late summer as we have just been commissioned to make two half hour programmes showcasing Welsh bands and artists, playing at venues and events across Wales. This is in addition to our current production featuring Welsh-based and Welsh born performers at the Edinburgh Festivals, due for tx at the end of August 2018.
Our latest TV production will follow Welsh-based artists as they make the journey to the world's biggest arts festival. Due for TX later in 2018.
