Blood is Thicker than Skulls.
The Bruvs comes from the minds of Ian Brown (Joe and Caspar Hit the Road) and Eoin Clarke (1300cc) and is directly aimed at the adult audience. Ian tells RRR about The Bruvs.
The films feature a family of East London villains trying to go straight in a new home in Essex – and failing big time. They usually end in some sort of violence – usually involving lead characters – brothers Doug and Den Bruv, proving in their case that blood is thicker.
My adult animation that runs on Dave on UKTV late nights and also on their VoD UKTVplay.
They have 11 episodes and all other episodes and new episodes are exclusive to our youtube channel.
“Our hope is to develop the stories and films more and turn TheBruvs into an animated sitcom. There has not been a truly successful Brit comedy animation sitcom – despite our appetite for the US juggernauts. While we are a long way off, the hope is to develop TheBruvs and make longer episodes to take on – eventually – the likes of Family Guy / South Park… We are far from that at the moment. But the hope is there. The US ones score well here. Family Guy – boosted by Love Island – got 1.7m a while ago on itv2”.
Writer/producer Ian has a pedigree that stretches back some thirty years and has written or produced for the likes of Harrison Ford, Charlton Heston, Pierce Brosnan, Paul Whitehouse, Charlie Higson, Homer Simpson, Vic and Bob, Ant and Dec, Bruce Forsyth, This Is Your Life, Top Gear, Liam Neeson, Jason Statham, the casts of EastEnders, Coronation Street, Holby, Emmerdale, Casualty, Ross Kemp, Martin Kemp, Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay, Des O’Connor and many more.
I was also a reporter and sub at the very tail end of Fleet Street.
These award winning (Best Animation Short award at the Romford Film Festival for our film Talking with Dinosaurs) short films run about one and a half minutes up to three minutes and bring adult humour to the masses.
The Bruvs is a slice of the Eastend in rural Essex, Mint!
