WAY TO GO CONFIRMED. NATIVITY 2 UPDATE

The BBC have just confirmed that WAY TO GO will now be broadcast on Thursday January 17th 2013 at 10.30pm on BBC3.  Marc stars as Cozzo.



"New six-part black comedy Way To Go is about three ordinary friends who find themselves forced by an extraordinary set of circumstances into setting up an assisted-suicide business.

Created by US comedy writer Bob Kushell, (The Simpsons, 3rd Rock From The Sun, Anger Management), Way To Go follows half-brothers Scott (Blake Harrison, The Inbetweeners), Joey (Ben Heathcote) and their friend Cozzo (Marc Wootton, La La Land, High Spirits With Shirley Ghostman) as they navigate the waters of running an illegal business. Along the way, the 20-something mates find love in the strangest ways, fall out with each other and are touched by the people they come across. But it's their own inadequacies and personal circumstances which lead to comedy in the darkest of situations.

In episode one, The Beginning Of The End, Scott, who is already faced with a predatory female employer, a split from his girlfriend, and a desperate life-or-death need for cash to pay off Joey's gambling debts, reluctantly agrees to assist the terminally ill old man across the hall with his suicide. Scott employs his friend, Cozzo to build what Scott thinks is their only solution: an assisted-suicide machine. It's a deeply illicit and illegal situation about which they will have to keep very, very quiet. But Cozzo, whose prying wife Debbie (Sinéad Matthews) is a police officer, decides if he's going to take the risk, they should turn assisted suicide into a business.

The series is created and written by Bob Kushell with additional episodes written by Russell Arch, Brian Dooley (Smoking Room) and Jeff Greenstein (Desperate Housewives, Will And Grace). The directors are Catherine Morshead (The Great Outdoors, Doctor Who, Ashes To Ashes) and Jeff Greenstein (Desperate Housewives, Will And Grace). The producer is Justin Davies (Psychoville, Some Girls) and the executive producer is Jon Plowman (Ab Fab, Psychoville, Twenty Twelve)."
