Gavin & Stacey and The Inbetweeners were in the sights of Sky1 says the channel’s controller Stuart Murphy.
Murphy admitted at the Edinburgh TV Festival that he had made a play at Gavin & Stacey producers to try and lure the series away from the BBC.
“They wanted to stay at the BBC and finish at the BBC and I respect them for that,” he said.
He also noted that he had “tried to nick” The Inbetweeners from E4 and says he still wants to work with the cast and the writers with Sky in the future.
