The Fosse Forest Ballet
A brand new theatrical sitcom that follows the journey of the latest, most innovative show to appear in London's West End; The Fosse Forest Ballet. Starring comedic talent Philip Joel who embodies multiple title roles, alongside a star-studded West End cast including Kerry Ellis, Louise Dearman, Oliver Savile and Darren Day. Part mockumentary, part improvisational comedy, part story-driven narrative, this is a show about a show that doesn't exist. In this first pilot episode, we begin our journey in the audition room, as we follow a band of hopefuls, all desperate to make their London debut.
Behind the scenes
The Fosse Forest Ballet began during lockdown when it was first mentioned ‘off the cuff’ in some hilarious social media sketches by choreographer & actor, Philip Joel.
At a time where many of us were starved of theatrical content, Philip’s videos struck a chord with hundreds of thousands of viewers, one of which was David Muscat.
With a feeling that Philip’s genius creation could be expanded upon, David reached out and pitched the idea of developing the concept into a TV series. Over several Proseccos and cheese-boards, the two agreed to join forces and develop the project further.
