Spirit FM to feature in new BBC Two TV comedy show

A new BBC comedy, Don’t forget the Driver, will include radio elements recorded by Spirit FM.

The series, set in Bognor Regis will be on our TV screens for the first time tonight (April 9th).

‘Don’t Forget the Driver’ is created by playwright Tim Crouch and co-written by actor Toby Jones.

The series follows the life of Peter, a frustrated coach driver and single dad who is struggling to deal with a complicated daughter and a mother in bad health. Being a coach driver, Peter listens to his local radio station Spirit FM and presenters will be heard in some of the episodes.

Stuart McGinley, Content Director at Spirit FM told us: “We were delighted to be asked to help out with the production of the show, and glad the character Peter likes to listen to Spirit FM!”

The first episode of the six-part series will be broadcast on BBC Two tonight, Tuesday 9th April, at 10pm.
