The King is Dead

The King Is Dead

The Chief of Police has kicked the bucket, the President has been assassinated and the King is dead! So, who do you turn to?

Each week on The King Is Dead a well-known public figure is hypothetically bumped off. It’s down to the comedic interview panel, led by Simon Bird, to scour the Great British celebrity pool for a top-notch replacement. Three celebrities compete in this unique and vigorous interview process in a bid to prove they are the best applicant for the available job.
