James Corden to bring new comedy to Cannes

Wednesday April 10, 2013

James Corden has joined friend and collaborator Mathew Baynton in Cannes to showcase their new comedy thriller The Wrong Mans.

The Gavin And Stacey star and Mathew - who played Deano in the hit comedy - co-wrote the new BBC show about two hapless office workers inadvertently caught up in a criminal conspiracy.

James, Mathew and director Jim Field Smith - whose previous work includes sitcom Episodes - were promoting their new venture at the MIPTV convention in the south of France.

Mathew previously told the BBC: "James and I dreamt up The Wrong Mans during a break on the set of Gavin And Stacey four years ago."

Executive producer Mark Freeland revealed: "We are trying to do a comedy with explosions, a lot of running about, murder, extortion, friendship and love. I cannot wait. But I'm glad I'm not doing the running about bit."

James and Mathew will play Phil and Sam, a pair of office workers who answer a ringing phone at the site of a car crash and find themselves thrust into a deadly underworld.
