Sky comedy fans are in for a treat this summer as the digital TV provider has confirmed TX for the series 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy on Sky 1 HD – a fresh new programme from Baz Ashmway (How Long Can You Go?, Baz’s Culture Clash and Baz’s Extremem Worlds).

Starting on Monday 25 August at 9pm, the first hour long episode will be screened by the service provider and introduce audiences to the colourful characters of this great series – including Baz’s own mammy: Nancy. 

With six episodes in total, 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy is hoped to be another hit for the digital TV provider who has developed a reputation for supporting home-grown Irish talent

Managing Director or Sky Ireland, JD Buckley, said that Sky was continuing to show “its commitment to quality home-grown programming with this funny and engaging new series” and expressed his pleasure at seeing more Irish talent on TV screens following the success of hit comedies like Moone Boy.

Baz Ashmawy was equally pleased with Sky’s decision and his mother’s own willingness to get stuck-in, saying: “I’m so excited for everyone to see it on Sky 1 next month, and, who knows, my mammy might just inspire some viewers to set off on their very own journey of discovery!” 50 Ways To Kill your Mammy is a factual entertainment show that follows an Irish mammy (Nancy) and her thrill-seeking son (Baz) as they go on a series of adventures.

Filming for the show took place at various locations in Africa, Asia and the USA with Nancy put through a series of exciting and exhilarating tasks.

These included everything from skydiving to alligator wrangling with Baz ensuring that each activity and adventure was planned in accordance with his mother’s limitations.

The series was directed by Barry Egan of Brown Bread Films, who has worked with Baz previously, while all post production on the series was completed by Dublin-based EGG Post Production. Comedy fans should tune into Sky 1 HD on Monday 25 August at 9pm to catch the first instalment of this brilliant entertainment show.
