    Shane Allen of the BBC talks about a "New Age," of comedy at the network #HeliumRadio

Shane Allen, Serves as the Controller, Comedy Commissioning, at the BBC. He is the man who oversees what comedy programs the network airs and who doesn’t make the cut.

He talks about how some of the networks new offerings as well as why he is excited about Britbox comedies like Hold the Sunset with John Cleese and Living the Dream, Mum, plus much more.

We also talk about Living the Dream that hits home for Floridians. As you may know nearly a million former residents of the U.K. now live in the central Florida area.

Well the show follows the Pembertons, a British family who relocate from rain-soaked England to sunny Florida to take ownership of a fledgling RV park in Kissimmee

They soon learn the American dream is not all it’s cracked up to be and that the Florida sun can sometimes scorch. Starring: Philip Glenister (Life On Mars, Ashes to Ashes and Outcast); Lesley Sharp (The Full Monty, Vera Drake); Kim Fields (The Facts of Life, Living Single); Kevin Nash (Magic Mike, John Wick) and Leslie Jordan (The Cool Kids, Will & Grace).
The show will be coming to BritBox soon and we will chat with the cast in an upcoming Stream On edition.
