Coming Next … Pushing Up Daisies

Whilst wandering around YouTube this morning, I stumbled across this.

It’s a Channel 4 promo for a show called Coming Next, which I’m amazed I’ve never heard of before. It stars Chris Barrie, Hale & Pace, and Carla Mendonça. Produced by Paul Jackson, and directed by Geoff Posner, it even has a writer credit for Stephen Fry.

The show originally aired as Pushing Up Daisies at the end of 1984, and returned for its second series the following year as Coming Next.

If you want to know more, head on over to the brilliant Curious British Telly site for a more in depth look.
