Toronto, ON – An all-star international comedy team brings the first ever animated sitcom about family, football and the passion of being a fan to Bite TV this summer. Warren United kicks off on Monday, June 23 on Bite TV, with the World Cup in full throw.
Simon Nye, the writer of the hit sitcom Men Behaving Badly, and Baby Cow, Steve Coogan and Henry Normal’s production company behind film and TV hits like Philomena, The Trip, Moone Boy, Alan Partridge, Gavin and Stacey, partner with leading Canadian producer Smiley Guy Studios to bring you this animated comedy.
Each week, Warren United follows the fortunes of Warren Kingsley, an out-of-shape kitchen salesman and fervent football fan, as he stumbles through life trying to juggle his two passions – football and family.
Warren, aged 37 and a half, is a fan for all seasons and a guy of two halves: both a devoted husband and dad and a diehard fan of Brainsford United, a chronically struggling football club, known to its long-suffering fans as “The Meringues”.
Warren United is the brainchild of Bill Freedman, an expat Torontonian, who has spent no less than eight years bringing it to the screen. Also a devoted football (and hockey) fan, for decades he was a key figure in London’s West End theatre scene as a producer and theatre-owner. Warren United marks his TV debut, at the age of 84 and three quarters – which probably makes him the world’s oldest TV producer.
