Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two and David Brindley, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment have announced the recommission of both The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan and Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing.

 
The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan will again see the comedian travel to some of the most unlikely places on earth to go on holiday. Made by Rumpus Media, the first series aired in three-parts in July.

 

Rumpus Media Joint Managing Director, Emily Hudd, said: “We’ve loved building a creative partnership with Romesh over the past four years for the BBC – from exploring his family heritage with Asian Provocateur to hitting the road less travelled in his Misadventures. We’re thrilled that despite risking his life and dignity multiple times in the first run, Romesh will be back bringing his uniquely smart and funny take on more of the world’s unlikely tourist spots for series two.”


Owl Power’s Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing, which follows the two comedians and lifelong friends as Whitehouse teaches Mortimer to fish, will return with a brand new series of six half-hour episodes next year.

 

Both series were commissioned by Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two and David Brindley, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment. The commissioning editor for The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan is Catherine Catton.

 

The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan is a Rumpus Media production for BBC Two. The Executive producers are Emily Hudd and Morgan Roberts. 

 

Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing (6x30) is an Owl Power Production for BBC Two. The Executive Producer is Lisa Clark.
