Peter Kay returns to Channel 4 in 2013 in a brand new one hour comedy special, Malachy’s Millions , produced by Baby Cow and commissioned by Deputy Head of Comedy, Nerys Evans.
Malachy Mooney (Peter Kay) is a self-made millionaire, having accumulated his fortune through his coach empire ‘The Mooneys’ – Taking You Away From Everything You Know’. However, for one week Malachy will trade his luxury lifestyle – the large house, the manicured gardens, and the lion statues to go live undercover in a destitute former mining town in Northern England, hoping to change lives and make dreams come true with deserving folk for his monies.
Peter Kay said “The script by Jo Enright and Lorna Burke made me laugh a lot and I also liked the opportunity of playing a character again”
Deputy Head of Comedy Nerys Evans said: “It’s fantastic to have Peter starring in this beautifully written comedy from Baby Cow. We can’t wait to have him back on our screens in this laugh out loud one off comedy special.”
Baby Cow producer Gill Isles said: “It’s an amazing opportunity for Baby Cow to collaborate with Peter Kay on this genuinely funny script. Working with Channel 4 and a comedy actor of Peter’s calibre makes this a dream project for us”.
Written by Lorna Burke and Jo Enright. Producer is Gill Isles and Executive Producer: Henry Normal. Malachy’s Millions is produced by Baby Cow for Channel 4.
