BBC Three is expanding Threesomes. The channel's short-form comedy strand, which is designed to give comedy writers and performers opportunity to bring their ideas to screen in a series of 3x3’ shorts, will now commission seven short-form projects per year. To that end, BBC Three has commissioned three further Threesomes: Hunter, a comedy about an attention seeking life-guru from Jon Pointing, Sophie Goodhart and Baby Cow Productions; Oi, Pussy!, a hyrbid effort combining live action and CGI following a cat; and Fully Blown, about two friends who don superstar rap personas. BBC Three has also renewed Kayode Ewumi's Enterprice for a second season.
