Stella Street is an offbeat sitcom/sketch show, which features comedians Phil Cornwell and John Sessions doing impressions of a multitude of celebrities.
The basic premise is that these stars, such as Michael Caine, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino, have all moved to London, and live on the same street.
The show has so far been a BBC2 regular, and four series have been aired on the channel, but now it’s coming exclusively to the online sector, by way of Log.tv.
Director Peter Richardson looks to have been fed up with the constraints of traditional television, and so decided to relaunch the cult show on the Internet instead.
“With Log.tv we don’t have to worry about the constraints of the terrestrial broadcaster.”
“The whole packaging process with TV can take years. Now, we can make quick decisions for ourselves and make it.”
“We can use young undiscovered attractive talent which brings an energy to the project I could never get from TV productions.”
Log.tv itself only launched two months ago as a talent broadcasting network and distribution platform, which encourages users to upload content, as well as collaborating with programme makers such as this.
This is brilliant news, as the show is a must see, especially for those in to alternative comedies. Log.tv is currently free to watch and in beta testing.
