Toast of Tinseltown coming to BBC One

Matt Berry reprises his role of Steven Toast from the hit Channel 4 series Toast of London.


In the new six-part series, Toast of Tinseltown, Steven Toast moves to Hollywood in an attempt to become a movie star.


Matt Berry returns as Steven Toast, an eccentric and arrogant actor determined to win the recognition he mistakenly believes he deserves.


Written and created by Arthur Mathews and Matt Berry, the series will feature a mix of new and returning cast members and is set to be filmed later this year.

Three series of Toast Of London originally aired between 2013 and 2015 on Channel 4 and were all written by Arthur and Matt, who scooped the BAFTA Best Male Comedy Performance for his role.


Speaking about the new series, Matt Berry said "I couldn't be more thrilled to not only be working with Arthur and the rest of the Toast family again, but to also be taking the show to the BBC which I know Toast himself would very much approve."

Writer Arthur Mathews added "It was a thrill to be writing Toast again after a long gap. Hollywood is a brave new world for Toast. There will be triumphs and tribulations (but mostly tribulations - and indeed humiliations)."

Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning, Shane Allen, said "This sitcom is one of the stand-out comedy gems of the last decade. His name belongs in the pantheon of celebrated British comedy character buffoons - Partridge, Brent and Toast."


The Executive Producers for Objective Fiction are Ben Farrell, Matt Berry and Arthur Mathews with Paul Lee and David Flynn acting as executive producers for wiip.


And Objective Fiction's Chief Creative Officer, Ben Farrell added "I’m thrilled to be working with wiip and the BBC to bring Toast’s adventures to the ultimate actor’s playground – Hollywood!"


The Toast of Tinseltown will air on BBC One
