Munich, November 21, 2011. SevenOne International picked up the rights for the Dutch sketch comedy “Bonkers” which will premiere on SBS6 early next year.
Caroline Kusser, Director North America of SevenOne International, comments: “We are delighted to present this fresh and funny mix between a sketch comedy and hidden camera show to our buyers.”
Jasper van der Schalie, CEO of Stepping Stone Productions: “I am very happy to partner with SevenOne International. Renowned for “Benidorm Bastards”, “Bonkers” just fits in perfectly with SevenOne’s comedy portfolio.”
Each episode of “Bonkers”, which translates to ”crazy” or “nuts”, shows approximately 30 short sketches based on classical and newly invented jokes. In addition a stand up comedian roams the streets with a hidden camera and tells jokes to unsuspecting pedestrians.
