Sitcom
Added to BCG
2009

This mockumentary sitcom pilot stars Sir Ian McKellen as his own (fictional) brother. Murray McKellen, head of the equally fictional Clapham Academy of Creative Arts (CACA), invites cameras into his beloved school in an attempt to raise its profile - and its bank balance - in the tough economic times.

Produced by Humphrey Barclay for DLT Entertainment (best known as the company behind My Family).
