About the show
The Bubble was a British television quiz show hosted by David Mitchell, and made for the BBC by Hat Trick Productions. Each week, three comedians were tasked to differentiate real news stories from fake ones, after four days of isolation in 'The Bubble', a remote country house. A first series was broadcast on BBC Two from 19 February 2010, running for six episodes. A second series was planned but later abandoned.
