BBC Brings Stage Comedy ‘The Goes Wrong Show’ To TV Backed By Lionsgate

Lionsgate has partnered with Big Talk Productions and Mischief Screen to bring a comedy stage play to BBC One.

The British public broadcaster has commissioned The Goes Wrong Show, which is based on Mischief Theatre’s eponymous play from the team behind Peter Pan Goes Wrong and A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong, which were previously adapted for television.
