All Female Sketch Show Flaps is Back for Season Two

All Female Sketch Show Flaps is Back for Season Two

After the success of Flaps season one, Comedy Central bring you Flaps Season two! Flaps S2 is an eight part sketch show exploring a whole host of shared female experiences, from dating fails, to contraception horror stories, to the slow (but inevitable) decline of turning into your mother. With a brand new (almost all female!) cast, crew and writing team, Flaps gives opportunity to rising comedic talent and celebrates new faces across all areas of production. Mary Rose of Vis Productions produced season 2 and Bethan Seller directed all eight episodes.


Director Bethan explains more about the project: “I’m primarily a commercials director, but I’ve always been itching to get into comedy. Ever since I was weeny I would daydream about having my own sketch show. I would parade around the house doing (questionable) impressions of Catherine Tate characters to entertain my parents and their friends. You can imagine the joy I felt when out of the blue I got approached to direct 8 whole episodes of Flaps!  I’m hoping this is the start of a chapter for me. I’ve just finished directing a three part comedy sitcom for BBC Three – Peck ‘Eds – which is a working class, Stockport based coming of age story following three high school girls. It’s now live on iPlayer if you’re in the market for some Northern voices.

“Each sketch had a different theme behind it, which gave me the opportunity to experiment with a bunch of different aesthetic genres. We step inside the fast paced and urgent environment of the Fringe Helpline centre, which spoofs an emergency helpline documentary TV show. Urban Horror Stories takes us down a spooky journey, mocking classic horror tropes. Grammanly uses happy-clappy American commercials as its inspiration, but on the other end of the spectrum we see How Not To Flirt, which feels like a fly on the wall documentary. It was so much fun running wild around genres I don’t usually get to dip my toes into.

“Our industry is fairly male dominated. Don’t get me wrong, most of them are brilliant, but it can be a bit of a sausage party at times. As a young female director with a general need-2-please, I can often find myself trying to camouflage into the boys club. Working on Flaps was such a special experience for me, as nearly all the cast and crew members were women.  It was so humbling and inspiring. It was incredible to be reminded (and shown!) how many talented women there are in our industry, and even more amazing to have so many of them underneath one roof. I felt very lucky to work alongside them all. We had loads to shoot each day, but being surrounded by hilarious, professional idiots all day everyday made the shoot such a joy.”
