After a six year gap the leading ladies of Smack the Pony – Doon Mackichan, Fiona Allen and Sally Phillips – are reuniting to do a new show together.

While they’ve appeared on our screens a few times since, none of the girls have had a runaway success.  Phillips appeared in the mental but hilarious Green Wing and more recently Jam and Jerusalem.  Mackichan is currently providing the laughs in Taking the Flak but Allen has appeared sporadically and not really made her mark.

While the new project is still in development it’s said to have more of a narrative structure to it rather than the sketch show format of Pony.

Mackichan said of the new project, “We are back together and it is brilliant. It will be interesting to see us back on, having been through kids, husbands and life – with all the different experience… We have tried to do it before, but life has taken over and so we have been meeting up over the last few months, formulating and cooking the idea.?

With the sketch show format relatively done by this point, this new girl on girl comedy show could be welcome relief.
