About This Project

Overview

We recently completed our third David Walliams adaptation for King Bert Productions.

Shown on BBC1 on Boxing Day, the Midnight Gang tells the story of Tom, a young boy who must spend a stint in the children’s ward at Lord Funt Hospital, after an accident during a cricket game.

Once he arrives, Tom quickly makes enemies — including a frightening porter and a bitter matron who dislikes children — and friends, as he discovers The Midnight Gang, a group of kids who secretly sneak out of the ward at midnight and go on magical adventures.

Lola were tasked with making a 90 year old pensioner fly around London under a bunch of helium filled balloons, in true Walliams style ending up naked atop Nelson’s Column (ooer).

Paul Cousins provided a CG St. Paul’s Cathedral and Chris Glew added Big Ben, the London Eye and some rather aggressive pigeons.

The show was directed by Elliot Hegarty and produced by Charlie Leech.
