It’s a…sci-fi IT sitcom? So, pretty much my life then. [LINK]
Channel 4 has ordered a full series of new sitcom The Cloud.
Written by Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The IT Crowd) and Adam Buxton, the comedy is set aboard Cloud Station 13, a space-based data storage facility.
The job of Cloud Station 13 is to protect the vast amounts of information the human population now hoards on its endless devices – the majority of which comprises of selfies, copious pictures of kittens and a lot of porn.
A pilot episode was filmed in Spring 2015, with producers explaining: “The disparate group who man the hub are anything but technical whizzes; which would matter less if technology – including a largely voice activated ship – was a little more reliable.”
I’m sufficiently intrigued by the premise to check it out. 😆
Wow, that’s an imaginative premise for a show. And there’s multiple ways the show could run out of steam. I’m optimistic about this one. It’s rare to have new and interesting ideas in the media nowadays.
