In an exciting, first-time collaboration, Australian production companies Radio Karate (Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year) and Princess Pictures (It’s a Date) have joined forces with UK company Objective Fiction (Peep Show, Toast of London) to produce a brand new comedy Blap for Channel 4.
Written and created by Ryan Shelton (Rove, The Wrong Girl, Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year), HOW TO LIFE is a 3-part short form web comedy series that follows Ryan as he turns his unusual, everyday life experiences into even unusualer life lessons (How to Lie, How to French Kiss and How to Escape Boring Conversations). It’s a series that explores what might happen if one egotistical know-it-all turned his bizarre, everyday life-experiences into a series of spontaneous and idiotic How To lessons.
Playing a heightened version of himself, comedian Ryan Shelton stars as the host and protagonist in How to Life; a fast-moving hybrid of narrative, sketch and surrealism, featuring regular appearances from a number of familiar faces (including Gina Riley, Hamish Blake, Pia Miranda) in fun, unfamiliar roles.
It is directed by Tim Bartley, produced by Laura Waters, Andrea Denholm, Tim Bartley and Ryan Shelton, and from Objective Fiction, executive produced by Ben Farrell and produced by Kelly McGolpin.
