Continuing to achieve viewership figures surpassing expectations, Channel 4.0 has greenlit the production of two thrilling new series, featuring some of the channel’s most beloved personalities: Chloe Burrows, Harry Pinero, and Yung Filly.
Titled “Bad Baby,” this innovative digital prank game will be hosted by Chloe Burrows. In this show, she will oversee from the ‘control centre’ as unsuspecting young couples are plunged into the challenges of parenthood. They must undertake a series of cringe-inducing tasks to pacify their foul-mouthed ‘bad baby’ and compete for a monetary reward. Each episode will feature Chloe accompanied by a guest prankster, assuming the role of the mischievous ‘Bad Baby,’ ramping up the pranks and creating mayhem for the unprepared couples.
The series “Bad Baby,” comprising six episodes, is a creation of Tuesday’s Child, with Steph Harris as the Executive Producer and Will Brown as the Series Producer. The show was given the go-ahead by Digital Commissioning Editor for Comedy, Charlie Hyland.
Presented by Yung Filly and Harry Pinero, “The Filly and Harry Show” is the latest offering from Wall of Productions. In this brand-new series, the popular YouTube personalities delve deeply into the trending subjects of the day. However, the show doesn’t stop there – the discussions serve as a wellspring of inspiration for an assorted collection of sketches. These sketches transport Harry and Filly into distinct worlds and characters with each iteration.
Comprising six episodes, “The Filly and Harry Show” is produced by Wall of Productions, with Joivan Wade, Percelle Ascott, and Tafara Makopa as the Executive Producers. The show was scripted and directed by Shakii Mongulu, Sam Ewen, and Joivan Wade. The series was given the green light by Channel 4 Digital Commissioner, Charlie Hyland.
Channel 4.0 has also already renewed “Harry Pinero’s Worst in Class,” “Get in the Van,” and “Mist’Driven,” all currently available. Additionally, a second series of “Tapped Out” has been commissioned.

Steph Harris from Tuesday’s Child said: “Chloe is the perfect mistress of mischief to mess with our couples with the help of some of the best pranksters around – unleashing a far-from-innocent baby (and parents) on the unsuspecting public with hilarious and cringe results.”
Wall of Productions’ Joivan Wade said of The Filly and Harry Show: “This show is for anyone who loves this duo. Harry and Filly doing what they do best – bringing the laughs, plenty of improv and their infectious personalities. We had the best time making this for 4.0!”
