The Munch Bunch (ITV1, unbroadcast pilot, 2010)
Dennis Waterman stars as the ringleader of a gang of art thieves who decide to steal only Norwegian expressionist paintings. Commissioned for ITV1 in 2010 the pilot was never broadcast after writers quickly ran out of Norwegian expressionist painters that justified the title, and following a dispute about the theme tune (Waterman insisted on his own recording of the popular children’s TV show theme, but producers disagreed). The production team went on to work on Goyas and Dolls.
Rating: 1/10 – better than THe Deep and Vexed.
