‘Holy Flying Circus,’ the upcoming comedy film that re-tells the controversy surrounding Monty Python’s 1979 movie ‘Life of Brian,’ has been selected to kick off cable network Ovation’s “The Best You’ve Never Seen” series. Written by Tony Roche, ‘Holy Flying Circus’ acts as a homage to one of the most original comedy teams in Britain’s television and film history. It adds to the debate about what’s acceptable subject matter for comedy. Director Owen Harris helmed ‘Holy Flying Circus,’ which stars Darren Boyd, Charles Edwards, Roy Marsden and Stephen Fry.

Kris Slava, SVP, Programming, Ovation, said ‘Holy Flying Circus’ is a program that features “extraordinary artistic storytelling that will make people sit up and notice. We’re exploring a range of themes-important cultural stories told in creative ways; stories based on iconic stories steeped in contemporary art and culture.”
