Matt Berry is to reprise his role of Steven Toast in a new six-part series coming to BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
The series will follow Toast, an eccentric and arrogant actor determined to win the recognition he mistakenly believes he deserves, as he moves to Hollywood and attempts to become a movie star.
The six 30 minute episodes are written and created by Arthur Mathews and Matt Berry and produced by Objective Fiction in association with wiip, Toast of Tinseltown will feature a mix of new and returning cast members and is set to be filmed later this year.
Matt Berry says: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to not only be working with Arthur and the rest of the Toast family again but to also be taking the show to the BBC which I know Toast himself would very much approve.”
Arthur Mathews says: “It was a thrill to be writing Toast again after a long gap. Hollywood is a brave new world for Toast. There will be triumphs and tribulations (but mostly tribulations – and indeed humiliations).”
Three series of ‘Toast of London’ originally aired between 2013 and 2015, all written by Arthur and Matt, who scooped the BAFTA Best Male Comedy Performance for his role.
Further broadcast and casting details will be announced in due course.
