The laughter continues at Steve Call Productions with the launch of season 3 of the award-winning TV Sitcom Up North.
Filming began this March with the legendary comic Billy Pearce. Billy, who also worked on season 2, plays the part of Tom Thatch in Up North.
The sitcom is directed by Bradford filmmaker Steve Call, who also plays Patch Thatch in the series, the nephew of Billy’s character and is written by Rotherham actor Dean Sills, who also plays Mick Smith in the series.
Season 3 will continue from the cliff-hanger of season 2 where Mick Smith was shot in the chest with the audience not knowing if Mick has died. The series will see the return of some of the original characters including Skint Flint played by Keiron Goodwin.
Steve and Dean also have their daughter’s working on the show again with Steve’s daughter Millie Grace Call working on camera and Dean’s daughter Rebecca Sills making the props.
Up North is going from strength to strength after it originally started out as a short film which became a pilot episode when the online TV Channel Essex TV picked the show up and funded and commissioned season 1.
Season 2 was then commissioned by Sheffield Live! where it is still getting reruns on a Monday night at 21.30 on their channel on Freeview and Virgin Media in Sheffield and online here: http://tv.sheffieldlive.org/
