THE pilot episode of a new comedy filmed in and around Bridport has made its online debut on BBC iPlayer.

‘Fuzzbox’, created by Bridport-based multimedia company My Pockets Ltd, features a cast of puppets being used to represent teenage attitudes and behaviour, in what the makers describe as an ‘alternative snapshot of contemporary teenage life’.

Producer Sally Snelling said: “We’re based on St Michael’s Trading Estate and we filmed scenes all over the town. You’ll be able to see a lot of Bridport.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to the Londis in Skilling and the Pierrepoint Gallery in South Street.

“We shot scenes using both of those locations and they were really helpful.”

The 20-minute pilot took five months to finish and the makers are hoping it could lead to television exposure.

Mrs Snelling said: “Last year in a similar project the shows made it on to terrestrial television in the autumn.

“Our film will be on the BBC iPlayer for six months to a year.

“The feedback from the BBC was good, they thought it was a great idea.

“Using the puppets adds a comic feel but it is definitely for adults, some of it is quite rude.

“It looks great and people will hopefully find it funny.”
