Filming underway on Bloods
Created by Kayo and Nathan Byron, the show is written by Byron and Paul Doolan and produced by Seb Barwell. The executive producers for Roughcut are Ash Atalla and Alex Smith.
The comedy follows a pair of seemingly mismatched paramedics fellow ambulance station colleagues through the life-saving world of a south London emergency service.
Lucy Punch, Julian Barratt, Adrian Scarborough, Kevin Garry, Sam Campbell and Aasiya Shah are among the cast.
Kayo said: “I’m super excited to show the world Bloods especially because I almost became a paramedic. Lucky for the NHS, I chose to play the character instead! I’m looking forward to hopefully bringing a bag of laughs to Sky with the lovely team at Roughcut who have some quality comedies under their belt!”
Horrocks added: “I am very much looking forward to working on Bloods and being paired with the extremely funny Samson Kayo. I know nothing of the world of paramedics, but maybe I need to overcome my fear of blood before I start.”
