BBC, DLT decide it’s ‘Time’ for 2 specials

Specials to air on BBC1, PBS

New York-based DLT Entertainment and its sister company, the Theatre of Comedy, have been commissioned by the BBC to produce two 45-minute specials of hit series “As Time Goes By,” starring Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer.

The specials, to be filmed early next year, were commissioned by BBC1 controller Lorraine Heggessey and will be written by Bob Larbey who wrote the previous nine series. Syd Lotterby will return to produce and direct as he has done since the first series in 1992.

The deal was announced Wednesday by Don Taffner Jr., DLT’s vice president.

Specials will air on the British pubcaster’s flagship channel BBC1 and are expected to air Stateside on PBS, which picked up the original skeins. The previous season of the comedy, about the relationship between two fiftysomethings, aired in 2002.
