New three-part series of Fungus the Bogeyman coming to SKY1 Christmas 2015!

Spall will be joined by BAFTA-winning actress and comedian Victoria Wood, Keeley Hawes, Marc Warren, Paul Kaye, Joanna Scanlan and Andy Serkis as the narrator.

Comprising both live action and animated elements to bring the well-loved book to life, the show will premiere on the channel during Christmas 2015.

This charming family adventure is a story of smelly monsters, dangerous humans and what happens when the things that go bump in the night move in next door.

We follow Fungus as he goes through his paces, menacing and frightening those on the surface (the 'Dry Cleaners') as Bogeymen are meant to do and have always done. Unlike other Bogeyman, Fungus has to navigate his world colliding with our above ground world. Over the course of the four episodes, Fungus and his son Mould journey through the maze of life on the surface, while also discovering the highs and lows of their father and son relationship.

Timothy Spall commented "Fungus has brought joy to generations of children and I am so thrilled to be playing such a beloved character. It's great to be working with Sky again and the skilled folk at Imaginarium to bring Fungus the Bogeyman out of the pages of Raymond Briggs' book and on to the small screen this Christmas."

Adam MacDonald, Director of Sky 1 added: "I'm beyond excited that Sky 1 and Imaginarium Studios will be bringing the Raymond Briggs' classic Fungus the Bogeyman squelchingly up to date as a top quality, ambitious and joyous family treat for our customers."

Fungus The Bogeyman is coming to Sky 1 HD at Christmas 2015.
