Even Baddies Wear Helmets
Episode 8: Sitcom with Anthony Q. Farrell
The time has come... Episode 8 is here - the FINAL episode of series 1 of Even Baddies Wear Helmets, the podcast all about children’s TV and the big kids who make it happen. And we’re going out with a bang!
This episode is all about SITCOM - writing the funnies, the antics, the gaffs and the mishaps. Our guest is the marvellous Anthony Q. Farrell, whose CV boasts an impressive range of credits, from The Office to Nickelodeon’s Thundermans. Anthony is the creator and showrunner of The Secret Life of Boys, an original sitcom produced by Zodiak Kids for CBBC and ABC (Australia). The series follows a young Australian girl, Ginger, who goes to the UK to spend the summer with her cousins - a group of unruly, messy and loveable boys. The first series aired in 2015, and the fifth and final series in January 2021. Anthony is also showrunner on two upcoming interlinked sitcoms - The Parker Andersons and Amelia Parker (marblemedia and Beachwood Canyon Productions.)
In our series finale, we talk about family and the challenges of showrunning two series at once, and ask the all-important question: What Would Kermit Do?
