Shooting begins for Alan Partridge’s groundbreaking new mental wellness study And Did Those Feet…

Filming is underway for Alan Partridge’s brand new documentary series And Did Those Feet… with Alan Partridge.

Produced by Steve Coogan (Partridge) and Henry Normal (poet)’s Manchester production house Baby Cow, And Did Thos Feet finds Alan is settling into life back in Norfolk after a year working in Saudi Arabia, but the adjustment has left him with a deep sense of unease.

Seeing himself and his homeland anew, there are pressing and frankly glaring questions he’d like to ask of himself and, on behalf of himself, of the country.

One of the first – if not the first – documentary to address the issue of mental wellness over six episodes following the revered and beloved broadcaster on a quest to understand what’s going on, with Britain’s minds and his own. It’s a show that makes a statement that will create shockwaves: “I’m Alan Partridge, and I’m not OK.” Partridge will write, present, direct and produce the series.

Partridge said: “I’m delighted to follow the Daily Mail’s exclusive coverage of filming and their gallery of paparazzi-style images with my own press release more or less confirming the details they’ve announced. All best, Alan.”

Sarah Monteith, Baby Cow CEO said: “Baby Cow are delighted to present all new Alan Partridge for BBC One. Broadcaster, Prodigal Son, National Treasure – he’s everything we need right now.”

Jon Petrie, BBC director of comedy commissioning, added: “Steve Coogan and Neil & Rob Gibbons have done it again. This look into the state of the nation (and Alan’s own psyche) through a unique lens – that of Alan Partridge – promises to further bolster the already iconic repertoire of the most legendary comedy character in the UK. This series will firmly cement Alan Partridge as a national treasure.”
