CANADA: W1A Season 1 Premieres On BBC Canada Tonight



The first season of the BBC TV comedy W1A premieres in Canada tonight. The first two episodes of the four part series will air on BBC Canada from 9.30pm ET.

Hugh Bonneville and Jessica Hynes star as Ian Fletcher and Siobhan Sharpe in the follow up to the award winning Twenty Twelve as their characters take up their new positions at the BBC. David Tennant provides the voiceover to the spoof fly-on-the-wall documentary which is written and directed for the BBC by John Morton.

W1A - Season 1
BBC Canada

Episode 1 - 9.30pm ET
With the London games of Twenty Twelve successfully delivered, Ian Fletcher starts a new chapter in his life as head of values at the BBC. Ian's first challenge on arriving at New Broadcasting House, on his brand new and much-improved folding bike, is to find somewhere to sit in a building aggressively over-designed around the principle of not having a desk. After accusations of anti-Cornish bias are levelled at the corporation, Ian calls in Siobhan Sharpe of PR company Perfect Curve to advise him. Meanwhile, producer Lucy Freeman chairs a meeting about forthcoming flagship show Britain's Tastiest Village. 

Episode 2 - 10.15pm ET
BBC Head of Values Ian Fletcher has only been in the job a few weeks and already finds himself at the centre of a media storm. Spotlight South West presenter Sally Wingate believes she has been discriminated against because of her age and so Ian is on a mission to take the sting out of what has become known as 'Wingategate'. As he journeys North to Salford for his first big interview in the job - live on air with Jenni Murray on Woman's Hour - he finds himself unhelpfully joined by brand consultant Siobhan Sharpe, who is in serious tweeting mode. Meanwhile, things are getting complicated for the Britain's Tastiest Village production team. 

The series continues with episode 3 next Friday at 9.30pm.

A second season of the show premiered in the UK last night.
