Mongrels, BBC THREE's critical acclaimed adult puppet comedy series, followed a fox, a dog, a cat and a pigeon living at the back of a pub in East London. Mongrels was both a sitcom and a fast-paced skewering of pop-culture.
The show was conceived in Adam's attic after he remortgaged his house and shot a micro-budget pilot, for which Andy Heath and Iestyn Evans provided the puppets and who's work and went on to win awards for the series. It gestated at the BBC where producer Stephen McCrum teamed Adam up with writer John Brown (Fresh Meat, Cuban Fury, Misfits) and together they birthed a cult hit.
Voiced by some wonderful comedy talent; Paul Kaye, Rufus Jones, Katy Brand, Dan Tetsell, Ruth Bratt and Lucy Montgomery, Mongrels mixed puppetry with real actors in a hand-held, live action shoot that was both hugely complicated and hugely rewarding.
Mongrels won an RTS Award for Production Design, an RTS Award for Visual Effects and an RTS nomination for Best Editing, as well as helping Jon Brown win the BAFTA for breakthrough talent.
