A new show from the creator of Major Tom and Hair Peace.


In 2013, Victoria Melody's dad (celebrity TV antique dealer, Mike Melody) was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Victoria trained as a funeral director so she could give him the service of his dreams - complete with eulogies, a Blackpool FC tangerine dress code and a New Orleans jazz procession. A year later the doctors realised they had misdiagnosed Mike. But they are going ahead with the funeral anyway...
 
Ugly Chief is a comedy based on true events, performed by a real-life father and daughter. It explores the taboos around death, and the fractious relationship with a parent whose opinion you don't always agree with. 

Mike Melody will be running his own version of the Antiques Roadshow during the show. Bring along your own heirlooms, curiosities and collectables for him to value!
