The New Statesman spin-off to deal with Brexit, Trump

A spin-off from political sitcom The New Statesman is being developed by the show’s creators Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran.

The B’Stard Legacy is being developed by the pair’s production company LocomoTV as well as Corona TV, founded by filmmaking duo Richard Johns and Rupert Jermyn.

FremantleMedia has a first-look option to distribute any titles originated by LocomoTV and holds a 25 per cent stake in Corona TV.

The new series follows Alan B’Stard’s son Arron, adopted by two Green Party activists in Welwyn Garden City, who has built up an international business and media empire.

The production is currently in development with no broadcaster attached.
