It is to be an adaptation of his previous Little Crackers programme, which was originally part of Sky1’s autobiographical series seeing the comedic re-enactment of a dramatic event in the life of a famous star.
Moone Boy is once again going to be written and acted by O’Dowd, and it will bring to life the story of 11 year old Martin Moone and his imaginary friend Sean Murphy.
With six scripts already written, it has been reported that Johnny Vegas and Steve Coogan are amongst those to guest-star in the series. O’Dowd spoke highly of the project himself: “It’s a really funny show which has loads of animation and a number of laughs that I hope people will love”. Also regarding the shows Irish setting he commented: “…what was great about Sky was they wanted us to film here and they were really supportive. That wouldn’t have happened at any other channel.”
