Rumbunch Commissioned!

The gang here at Top Dog is pleased to announce that Rumbuch has been commissioned by Radio 4. Very much inspired by the golden age of radio cabaret, Rumbunch is a variety show featuring sketches, epic-narratives, recurring characters, special guests, a disobedient house band, and an exhasperated host.

Half Time pilot

Top Dog has been filming a tv pilot called 'Half Time' which is a project that has been bubbling under for many years. It's a comedy drama about two commentators at the small but heroic non-league club Bromsfield Town.

Big Heart - Big Record

Three days in the studio with Richard Tyrone Jones has netted three episodes of the brand new spoken word sitcom, Big Heart. Following heart failure on his 30th birthday, we follow the eponymous Richard as he learns to live with this new normal, and work out just how hard he can push his life before his implanted cardioverter defibrillator electrocutes his heart.

Brain Food

Some might think that we here at Top Dog HQ have jettisoned our tax-payer subsided university education in order to make cheap gags on late night radio.
