The TV show that became a global viral sensation
BBC2 asked us to bring our unique brand of high-octane satire to a slightly older audience.
Having already conquered the climes of BBC3, “Revolting” aimed to bring satire to a different, slightly older generation of BBC2 viewers. But could satire still thrive in a mad new world, where the President’s a thatched satsuma whose catchphrases are “You’re fired” and “Grab her by the p*ssy”?
The show had to frame satire in a way that felt even more current and also had the capacity to have its own life online, with every sketch having the potential to become a viral sensation.
We ensured this evolution of “Revolution” broke new ground, using scripted sketches to set ‘em up, before the hell-raising real world stunts knocked ‘em down. This worked to perfection, creating a more well-rounded TV phenomenon that never failed to get into the news itself.
