Comedy Henpocalypse! Starts filming in Wirral and Snowdonia

HenpocalypseFilming is underway in Wirral and Snowdonia on new BBC Two comedy Henpocalypse! from writer Caroline Moran.  

Various Artists Limited (VAL) is producing the 6 x 30 comedy, that stars Elizabeth Berrington, Lucie Shorthouse, Lauren O’Rourke, Callie Cooke and Kate O’Flynn. 

Shorthouse plays bridezilla Zara, whose hen do is rudely interrupted – by the apocalypse. She and her fellow West Midlander hens struggle to survive as they wait out the breakdown of human civilisation in a remote holiday cottage in Wales. 

Writer Moran said:  “This is a dream cast, the locations are epic, the apocalypse has never been so much fun.”

The executive producers are Phil Clarke, Helen Williams, Jack Bayles and Roberto Troni. VAL is part of BBC Studios’ portfolio of invested indie production companies with whom they hold a minority share. 

Jon Petrie, director of comedy commissioning at the BBC, said: “It’s no surprise that Caz’s inventive scripts have attracted such a top cast. Her post-apocalyptic vision is both terrifying and utterly hilarious. We can’t wait to see it all come together.”
