BBC Three has commissioned a new reality series, Paddy & Molly: Show No Mersey, following the lives and careers of Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann.

The new show, produced by Hello Mary, will follow Liverpool natives and best friends, Paddy and Molly, two charismatic MMA fighters who are making a massive impact in UFC. The series will follow Paddy and Molly’s journey inside and outside of the cage as they take on the biggest fights of their lives – which will determine their legacy in the MMA world – all whilst juggling their relationships with friends and family.

Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann say: “We can’t wait for you all to see what a day in the life for us both entails. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows and a lot goes into what we do. You won’t believe it until you see it so get watching!”

Steve Regan, Executive Producer for Hello Mary says: “New series are always exciting to create but with characters as brilliant and entertaining as Paddy and Molly and a world that still feels unexplored to many people, this series has made myself and Hello Mary even more excited than usual!”

Nasfim Haque, Head of Content, BBC Three says: “BBC Three has established a track record in lifting the lid on some extraordinary, unexpected yet highly relevant talent to young audiences in the UK, so when we got the opportunity to work with these two brilliant, technicolour sportspeople we simply couldn’t refuse. Prepare yourselves… we cannot wait!”

Paddy & Molly: Show No Mersey (8×30’) is being made by Hello Mary for BBC Three and BBC iPlayer. Executive Producers for Hello Mary are Steve Regan and Sharyn Mills. It was commissioned by Nasfim Haque, Head of Content for BBC Three and Catherine Catton, Head of Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment. The BBC Commissioning Editor is Ricky Cooper.
