Frankie Boyle is returning to the BBC. Following the first season of his satirical show Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, BBC Two has ordered a one-off special looking back at the events of the past year.
“I’m so delighted to be doing this show as that little period between Christmas and New Year is something that I’ve always wanted to ruin for everybody”, Boyle said.
Frankie Boyle’s 2017 New World Order will see the comedian at his brilliant, satirical best with stand-up, review and discussion – all in an attempt to make mincemeat of the last 12 months. Zeppotron, part of Endemol Shine Group, is producing. No word on guests for the special. The series itself, which wrapped its four episode first season in July, was a successor of sorts to Frankie Boyle’s iPlayer exclusive ‘Autopsy’ shows.
“After the well-received series run this year it’ll be fascinating – and possibly jaw-dropping – to hear what Frankie and his guests have to say about 2017″, said the BBC’s Commissioning Editor for Comedy Alex Moody, who commissioned the special alongside BBC Two Controller Patrick Holland. “His scabrous way of getting beneath the skin of the major stories of the year will be both compelling and hilarious.”
