Guz Khan’s popular Small Heath show Man Like Mobeen to return in new series
Smash-hit BBC comedy show Man Like Mobeen, which is filmed in the Small Heath area of Birmingham, is set to return in a new series after an absence of three years.
Series Four of Guz Khan’s popular show will begin filming this autumn according to BBC sources.
The comedy show, which follows the hilarious trials and tribulations of a reformed gang member named Mobeen as he tries to guide his wayward friends – including his little sister – towards a better tomorrow, is set to make a return.
C0-writer, and star of the show, Guz Khan – who hails from the Midlands – has been delighting audiences up and down the country with his character in three seasons of the show, and he’s delighted to return to showcase the further misadventures of Mobeen.
Khan was busy filming in Hollywood, and working on various projects, when he got the exciting call for a new series of a Man Like Mobeen.
Speaking about the return of the show, Khan said: “I’ve been away in Hollywood for a couple of years, but the entire time I was there I felt like I needed to come home and give my people the show they love.
“It’s still crazy to me that despite having not made Man Like Mobeen for three years, it still means so much to the people. So we’re making more, for you.
“As always, I promise authenticity both on and off screen. That’s how real change is made.”
David Simpson, executive producer of the show, added: “We are absolutely delighted to see the return of Man Like Mobeen.
“The show has gone from strength to strength with every series, and Guz and Andy’s scripts are already packed full of twists and turns, originality, and hilarious new characters, all of which promises to make this series the best yet.”
Tanya Qureshi, Head of Comedy at the BBC, said: “The return of Man Like Mobeen was, quite simply, a no-brainer for us. Guz and the team’s enthusiasm and commitment to the show remains as strong as ever, for which we are really grateful.
“It’s a pure joy to be able to bring more episodes of this iconic comedy character to all the fans.”
The Birmingham show is shot in real locations around Small Heath, and fans of the show enjoy spotting some of the buildings and streets where the show is filmed.
The new series will once again offer a New Talent Trainee Scheme which gives paid entry-level production jobs and opportunities to candidates within the West Midlands.
