Much-loved comedy panel show, Never Mind the Buzzcocks is to return to Sky Max for a third series, with comedian, actor and writer Greg Davies leading the way back in the presenting chair. Produced by Talkback (a Fremantle label), the music themed quiz will also see the return of team captains, Noel Fielding and Daisy-May Cooper and regular guest Jamali Maddix for a 9 x 45 series including a Christmas Special for 2023.
Since making its new home at Sky, the renowned series has seen some big-name guests joining the panel including Nile Rogers, Shaggy, Pete Doherty, Ellie Goulding and Hannah Waddingham. A new host of brilliant guests will be putting their pop culture knowledge to the test for series three through a series of hilarious rounds including the iconic Identity Parade, which sees the panel trying to correctly identify the popstar from a line-up of people.
Speaking on the recommission, host Greg Davies said: “I’m delighted Buzzcocks is back and can’t wait to hang out with some musicians. So proud to be part of a team that looks like a disturbing cheese dream.”
Managing Director of Talkback, Jonno Richards, said: “It’s such great news that Buzzcocks is returning for series three on Sky. Expect more laughs & chaos from Greg and our fantastic cast. We can’t wait!”
Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment for Sky, Phil Edgar-Jones, said: “Never Mind the Buzzcocks is really really, really, really, really, really very, very funny so we are thrilled that Greg, Daisy, Noel and Jamali are back with a band of musical stars for a new series of rollicking rock and pop fun.”
Never Mind the Buzzcocks is produced by Talkback (a Fremantle label) and Executive Produced by Talkback Director of Programmes Kate Edmunds, Jordan Read and Jonno Richards. The series was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky and Phil Edgar Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment at Sky. Shirley Jones is the Commissioning Editor.
