Merman shows There She Goes and Catastrophe (co-produced with Avalon and Birdbath Productions) have been nominated for Best Comedy in the 23rd TV Choice Awards.
There She Goes is based on the life of writer Shaun Pye, whose daughter was born in 2006 with an extremely rare and, to date, undiagnosed chromosomal disorder. The show follows the story of severely learning disabled 9-year-old girl Rosie (Miley Locke), her dad Simon (David Tennant), mum Emily (Jessica Hynes) and brother Ben (Edan Hayhurst). Each episode shines a light on day-to-day life with Rosie – unique experiences from simply trying to take her to the park to trying to explain that everyday isn’t her birthday. There She Goes was directed by Simon Hynd and produced by Clelia Mountford, originally airing on BBC Four. Executive producers were Mountford and Sharon Horgan.
