Danilo brings Friday Night Dinner into calendars for the first time

The multi award-winning British comedy, Friday Night Dinner, is to feature in its first official calendar thanks to a new partnership with Danilo Promotions. The new, official calendar is available to buy now through Calendar Club, Amazon and Danilo.com

Created by Robert Popper, Friday Night Dinner features a stellar ensemble cast including Tamsin Greig, Simon Bird, Paul Ritter, Tom Rosenthal, and Mark Heap. Friday Night Dinner is an original series about growing up but not growing away.

Each episode takes place over the course of a Friday night, as brothers Adam (Bird) and Jonny (Rosenthal) go around to their parents’ house for Friday Night Dinner. The series first aired on Channel 4 in 2011 and since then has produced six series with 37 episodes. The recent sixth series became Channel 4’s biggest comedy series in over a decade.

Dan Grant, licensing director at Danilo, said: “Friday Night Dinner has become a firm favourite in our company, with its hilarious banter and brilliant characters. At its core, the show is about family and connections, bringing the household together, around a table. 

“We are thrilled to be working with the team at Direct to Retail, exclusive licensing agency, Big Talk, Robert Popper and the Friday Night Dinner team to create these new products.”

Friday Night Dinner is produced by Big Talk and Popper Pictures.
