Staff Room is the brainchild of BBC 3 Funny Hunt award winning filmmaker Ryan McDermott and co-creator Adam Brown. The pair have been developing the project for over 12 months together.
In summer 2013 the finance was raised via Kickstarter to shoot an independent pilot episode at Media City, Salford. Once completed, the pilot was shopped to producers across London and was quickly snapped up by Wildseed Studios.
Now in association with Wildseed studios, eight episodes are going into production and will be released exclusively online in what is set to be one of the biggest and most anticipated sitcoms to ever debut across the internet.
McDermott and Brown are set to co-write the series and McDermott will make his series directing debut for producers Jesse Cleverly & Miles Bullough at Wildseed Studios.
