ITV commissions two-part Off Their Rockers Blue Badge Special
 
Building on the success of hidden camera series Off Their Rockers, ITV will screen a two-part Blue Badge special in June.
 
The series, which usually sees fun loving OAPs hitting the streets of Britain to prank and play tricks on an unsuspecting public, will this time feature a cast made up entirely of actors with a disability who have a similar knack for causing mischief and mayhem.
 
The two half hour shows will broadcast off the back of the third series of the show, which concluded in April. 
 
Claire Zolkwer, Commissioning Editor, Comedy Entertainment for ITV said: “It’s exciting to evolve the Off Their Rockers format and put the pranks in the hands of a fearlessly funny group of disabled actors, all of whom have brought their own unique sense of intuition and comic timing to the programme.”
 
Executive Producer for CPL, Murray Boland said: “We're delighted that Off Their Rockers has struck such a chord with audiences. This time we return with a brilliant cast of disabled actors to prank the unsuspecting British public."
 
The Series was commissioned by Director of Entertainment and Comedy Elaine Bedell, ITV and Claire Zolkwer, Commissioning Editor, Comedy Entertainment, ITV. Murray Boland, Danielle Lux and Mobashir Dar will Executive Produce for CPL Productions alongside Series Producer, Paul Young and Series Editor, Myles Jenkins. Off Their Rockers is distributed internationally by Red Arrow International.
