Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry to reunite on TV

Former comedy double act Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are to reunite for a one-off television show, for the first time in 15 years.

The programme has been commissioned by UKTV’s Gold and will “celebrate 30 years of Fry & Laurie’s relationship”. The show will broadcast in the autumn on the satellite channel and the working title is Fry & Laurie: Re-United.

The show has been filmed and shows the comedians “opening up and revealing fascinating insights into their friendship and their careers,”

It also looks back at some of their sketches, interspersed with hilarious clips from their work.

UKTV’s director of commissioning Jane Rogerson says “Watching Hugh and Stephen reminisce over their 30 year friendship is heart-warming, funny and very special. We’re so proud they chose to do it for Gold.”

Ricky Kelehar, director of factual entertainment at Tiger Aspect Productions, adds “Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie have had extraordinary careers and have a remarkable relationship and we are thrilled that we have managed to persuade them to spend some quality time together especially for this project”.
