Celebrating the 20 year anniversary of its premiere on ITV in 2002 and ahead of a planned stage musical production, Big Broad Productions today release Footballers’ Wives The Musical the Studio Album.
Arranged and produced by Auburn Jam Music, it is available to stream from all major distributors.
To mark the release of the album there is a new video for the song ‘Who, Who, Who?’ featuring Alice Fearn, Emma Hatton, Liam Doyle, Simon Bailey and the Footballers’ Wives Studio Cast Ensemble.
A musical comedy noir based on the cult guilty pleasure noughties TV drama, Footballers’ Wives The Musical has a book by Maureen Chadwick, co-creator of the original TV series, and music & lyrics by Kath Gotts (also co-creators of Bad Girls – The Musical).
Footballers’ Wives The Musical is based around the first TV season, and follows the fall and rise of captain’s wife and fabulously flawed super-bitch Tanya Turner as she struggles to save her marriage and the career of her cheating husband, Jason.
Let’s wind back to 2002 when Premier League Football was the new Rock ‘n’ Roll – with the money, the glamour and the bad behaviour to match. At Earls Park FC, the players’ wives are living it to the max.
These WAGs have the designer gear, the palatial homes, the flash cars and the handsome superstar husbands – and the press pack on their kitten heels at every turn.
Footballers’ Wives The Musical contains scenes of an adult nature and absolutely no football, along with disastrous hen and stag nights, a fairy tale wedding, deception, betrayal and murder – plus a surprisingly happy ending.
It is based on the WBTVPUK series. Produced by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures. Co-producers are Arden Entertainment and Sally Humphreys Productions.
