BBC’s head of comedy laughs all the way to Sky


by David Allen

The head of BBC comedy, Lucy Lumsden, is leaving after working there for the past eleven years.

She will become the new head of comedy for Sky 1, 2, 3 and Sky 1 HD.

This move means that she will be working with Stuart Murphy again, who also made the switch from the BBC to Sky.

Stuart Murphy was head of BBC3 when Lumsden commissioned the award winning hit series “Gavin and Stacy”, something that Sky TV would like to see repeated with their dream team in place.

Lucy Lumsden first worked at the BBC on the “Comic Strip” back in 1992.

She also worked on other programming, such as documentaries and serials.

This move follows criticism that the BBC has fallen short in its efforts to launch new and innovative TV on BBC One.
