British Podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno Turning into TV Special for HBO

British podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno is being turned into a TV show

HBO will bring the hit British comedy podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno to the network for a comedy special in 2019, it was announced today by Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president, HBO Programming. Hosted by Jamie Morton, James Cooper and Alice Levine, the podcast has been downloaded more than 100 million times since its launch in 2015.

My Dad Wrote A Porno features Jamie Morton reading a chapter from the “Belinda Blinked” series of “erotic” novels, written by his real-life father under the nom de plume Rocky Flintstone, with his friends James Cooper and Alice Levine providing uproarious commentary.

“My Dad Wrote A Porno shows the extent of just how embarrassing dads can be, in the best possible way,” said Rosenstein. “James, Jamie and Alice transformed a very awkward situation into an undeniably hilarious experience that we’re excited to share with our audience.”

“We’re over the moon and honoured that HBO has decided to help bring Rocky Flintstone’s bad dad-rotica to the world – what are they thinking?!” say Team Porno. “The response to the live show has been incredible so far, so we can’t wait for more people to see it.”

The HBO comedy special will be produced by Done and Dusted; executive produced by Jamie Morton, James Cooper, Alice Levine and Rocky Flintstone; directed by Hamish Hamilton.

My Dad Wrote A Porno centers on co-creator Jamie Morton, who as the title suggests, has a father who wrote a porno. Instead, of ignoring it, Morton decided to read it to the world, and created a comedy podcast around the idea. With the help of his friends, Cooper and Alice Levine, Morton reads a chapter a week — leading him to discover more about his father than he ever bargained for.

Since its creation in 2015, My Dad Wrote A Porno‘s guests have included Daisy Ridley (The Last Jedi), Elijah Wood (Sin City), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley) and Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend).
