Sponsorship of Little Crackers, a season of autobiographical comic shorts from Britians best-loved stars, on air Dec 2010
The opportunity to sponsor Little Crackers, a season of autobiographical comic shorts from Britans best-loved stars. The all-star line up includes performances by Dawn French, Catherine Tate, Kathy Burke and Stephen Fry with home-grown favourites Victoria Bailey and Bill Bailey, directing their own tales. From a young Stephen Fry breaking the rules at school and trying to pull a fast one on the Head Teacher to Dawn French, aged 4, having the Queen mother over for tea, each short film will dramatise a humerous tale and provide a new insight into the life of a familiar face.
An excellent opportunity to build brand awareness and to associate with quality Sky1 programming during the christmas period.
