SMILE LOVE IT MIGHT NEVER HAPPEN

 **NOMINATED FOR BEST COMEDY PROGRAMME AT THE ROYAL TELEVISION SOCIETY NW AWARDS 2019**

**NOMINATED FOR INSPIRING INNOVATION AT THE MANCHESTER CULTURE AWARDS 2019**

Mr Benn meets Endgame (Beckett, not Avengers). An Eggs Collective production for BBC.

Has the apocalypse happened? Very possibly, but inside Eggs Collective's shop routine reigns and it’s pretty much business as usual. Except for the fact that there aren’t any customers and the staff never leave.

Smile Love It Might Never Happen is a three-part mini-series, commissioned by BBC Arts. It is an offbeat take on the legendary shops featured in decades of TV comedies. 

Broadcast in 2019 and made in Manchester (written in the beloved Star & Garter and filmed in an empty shop on Tib Street), Smile Love It Might Never Happen was made by a crew that was 66% female. It was directed by Rebecca Rycroft (Horrible Histories, Gap Year) and edited by Jo Walker (VEEP, After Life). It is Executive Produced for the BBC by Lamia Dabboussy and for Eggs Collective by Sara Cocker, Lowri Evans and Léonie Higgins.
