New BBC Comedy 'Sorry' Will Make You Want To Delete All Your Old Tweets

New BBC Comedy 'Sorry' Will Make You Want To Delete All Your Old Tweets

BBC's latest comedy short Sorry will have you going through your Twitter in an instant as it highlights the era of cancel culture, where celebrities are held accountable for their past actions.

The 13-minute piece is written by comedienne Lolly Adefope, who stars as Dolly Adesina, an actress on the cusp of fame and who brands herself the "black Jennifer Lawrence".

Suddenly her past social media commentary comes back to haunt her moments before her red-carpet debut and puts her blossoming career in jeopardy.

The short will have you second-guessing what you have chosen to post online and the fickleness of fame.

The comedy also stars British actress Catherine Shepherd, Babirye Bukilwa, Phillip Dunning and Joshua McGuire as Dolly's showbiz agent hell bent on getting her into a celebrity rehab called The Nest.

Speaking about the short, creator and actress Lolly said: "So excited to be making a comedy short for BBC iPlayer, and especially excited by the opportunity to really get out of my zone by playing an actress who gets into trouble for something she tweeted!"

Damian Kavanagh, Executive Producer, said: "The team at Tiger Aspect are beyond excited to be working with the exceptionally talented Lolly on Sorry and helping her to bring her wonderful creation to life for audiences to enjoy."

Sorry is one of four comedy shorts that have landed on BBC's iPlayer in recent days.

Mandy marks the directorial debut from Diane Morgan, who also wrote and stars in Mandy, a comedy film about a woman who really wants a sofa while Gbemisola Ikumelo's Brain In Gear is a flat-share comedy where the nightmare tenants are the voices in your head.

Rounding off the BBC comedies is Lazy Susan, named after eponymous comedy duo Freya Parker and Celeste Dring, which gives us major Little Britain vibes.
