News brief: Danish net buys Comedy Stunt Show

Danish pubcaster DR has acquired an sketch series for its youth network DR Ultra.

The Stunt Comedy Show is billed as a “series of scripted sketches without dialogue” and is sold globally by Mads Dirckinck-Holmfeld’s boutique sale shouse The Funny Shorts Company.

DR’s Jacob Stegelmann said the series was a “very welcome revival of classic visual slapstick comedy with a contemporary touch”.

Dirckinck-Holmfeld was a former programme director at the now defunct Media Entertainment Group.
