The Big Door Prize

The Big Door Prize is a new comedy show launching this week on Apple TV+ and to mark the occasion, we had the pleasure in speaking to leading stars Chris O’Dowd and Gabrielle Dennis, as well as the showrunner David West Read.

With the former duo we discuss the notion of potential, and whether they ever think about what they are capable of – while we ask what it is really like to turn 40. Meanwhile, Read speaks about the allure of small-town set sitcoms, having been a force behind the scenes of Schitt’s Creek. Be sure to watch both interviews in their entirety below.
