The BAFTA awarded director of Feel Films ropes in Jack Whitehall and his father Michael as they take the US by storm, airing September 7th on Netflix Leo McCrea has been BAFTA nominated no less than three times for his comedy directing, most recently for his subtle handling of the comedy legends Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse, in the irreverent and often touching, Mortimer and Whitehouse Gone Fishing on BBC1.
Now he has a new comedy gem dropping on Netflix this Friday, 6th September, Travels With My Father.
After two very successful ratings winning seasons, Travels with My Father Season 3 returns to our screens. This time the charmingly foppish comic Jack Whitehall and his irascible Father Michael hit the US of A. Cue Cowboy hats, a motorhome in Vegas, a strip show, a hip-hop ride-along and the laughs are bound to be plentiful.
Leo McCrea is an expert at deftly handling comedic talent having worked his way from the trailblazing hidden camera reality series’ TOWIE and Made in Chelsea, to working alongside some of the brightest new comedy talent in Britain today including Richard Ayaoade, Katherine Ryan, Adrian Edmondson, Stephen Merchant and Romesh Ranganathan. He is now one of the few go-to trusted directors in British TV Comedy.
An expert in the nuance of comedic performance, Leo finds the heart-warming as well as the funny with ease, which has led to success in commercials for the likes of Suzuki, Nescafe, Sony, Barclays and BA.
