Boffola Pictures has confirmed that Joe Nunnery, producer of the hit BBC series Ladhood, will be joining the company in the new position of Head of Comedy.

Nunnery began his career at BBC Radio Comedy, where he produced award-winning series including Alexei Sayle’s Imaginary Sandwich Bar and Liam William’s Ladhood for Radio 4. He successfully developed Ladhood for a transition to TV and produced three series of the coming-of-age sitcom for BBC Three, while developing a range of projects at BBC Studios Comedy.

Boffola Pictures, established by Shane Allen and Kate Daughton in 2021, is planning the second series of the hit BBC comedy thriller Am I Being Unreasonable?, which is written by and stars Daisy May Cooper and Selin Hizli. The company is also currently shooting Undoing Martin Parker, a series for BBC One, written by Sian Gibson and Paul Coleman, and starring Conleth Hill, Sian Gibson and Rosie Cavaliero.

Joe Nunnery, Head of Comedy, Boffola, said “I couldn’t be more excited to join Boffola as I’ve long admired Kate and Shane as two of the most talented comedy minds in the business. It’s a privilege to be invited to join their team, who are already producing exciting and boundary-pushing comedy. I can’t wait to get started.”

Shane Allen, Chief Creative Officer, Boffola, said “Joe’s a class act; beloved by talent, agents and broadcasters alike. He espouses our company ethos of taking creative swings and backing talent 100%, alongside being rigorous and good-humoured. Kate and I are very much hoping he’s the Beyonce to our Kelly and Michelle, the Barry to our Maurice and Robin, the Good to our Bad and Ugly, the Crackle to our Snap and Pop. You get the idea, yeah?”
