BBC TV boss Danny Cohen on W1A: Is that me?

Sorry Mr Cohen, it's not...

W1A is returning to our screens next year for another run of the show that pokes fun at the BBC.


Starring Hugh Bonneville as BBC head of values Ian Fletcher with Jessica Hynes as his PR guru Siobhan Sharpe, shooting will begin in January on the new series.


But creator Jon Morton reassures us that the characters are based on ‘types’ rather than individual people – to the disappointment of the BBC’s bigwigs like television director Danny Cohen who apparently inquired “Is that me?” when trotting past during the filming of series one.
