The American writer, actor and comedian stars in series four of the popular kids podcast – which has 10 new spooky episodes streaming ahead of Halloween
Award-winning kids podcast Once Upon A Time In Zombieville has a brand new guest star for its latest series: American comedian Rob Delaney.
The renowned actor and writer has joined the popular BBC sci-fi show for series four – embodying the villainous role of bounty hunter and ‘hardest man alive’ Steve Diamond.
Created for 9-12 year-olds, Zombieville has raised the bar for kids audio entertainment in recent years, earning a British Podcast Award for Best Family Podcast in 2018.
The spine-chilling show was recommissioned for a fourth series by the BBC in 2021 – and is now streaming online in time for Halloween.
Zombieville is a project of Bigmouth Audio – with their talented team handling all production in-house including script supervision, sound design, original music score and final surround mix.
The casting of Delaney – writer/star of smash-hit TV show Catastrophe – has gone down a storm, demonstrating Bigmouth Audio’s proficiency in celebrity casting.
