Tern Television has been commissioned to make a pilot entertainment format for BBC Scotland fronted by comedian Paul Black.

Boasting a significant social media following, Paul Black has grown bored of his mighty and ever-growing influencing powers. The pilot will see the comedian handing the reins over to the public for this raucous comedy roadshow, which will see him take on an array of wild challenges set by his social media followers.

David Marshall, Head of Entertainment, Tern, says: “For years now, Paul has been moulding the masses and making them laugh, like, and share the love featured in his content. But now he will be handing his influencing powers over to his followers (A.K.A. strangers on the internet) and getting them to set him ludicrous challenges – all in the interest of generating some hilarious content. We are thrilled to be working with Paul and helping to bring his idiosyncratic comedy stylings to new audiences.”

The programme was commissioned by Steve Allen & Louise Thornton for BBC Scotland. It is Produced and Directed by Rod Tamime and Executive Produced by David Marshall for Tern at Zinc Media.
