Jeeves and Wooster is a British comedy-drama series from P.G. Wodehouse’s ‘Jeeves’ stories. Granada Television.It aired on the ITV network from 1990 to 1993, with the last series nominated for a British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series. It starred Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster and Stephen Fry as Jeeves. The stories are set in the United Kingdom and the United States in the 1930s.
It starred Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster, a young gentleman with a ‘distinctive blend of airy nonchalance and refined gormlessness’ and Stephen Fry as Jeeves, his improbably well-informed and talented valet. Wooster is a bachelor, a minor aristocrat and member of the idle rich. He and his friends, who are mainly members of The Drones Club, are extricated from all manner of societal misadventures by the indispensable valet (‘gentleman’s personal gentleman’), Jeeves.
When Fry and Laurie began the series they were already a popular double act (Fry and Laurie) due to regular appearances on Channel 4’s Friday Night Live and their own show A Bit of Fry & Laurie (BBC, 1987–95)
The theme (called ‘Jeeves and Wooster’) is an original piece of music in the jazz/swing style written by composer Anne Dudley for the programme.Dudley uses variations of the theme as a basis for all of the episodes’ scores and was awarded a British Academy Television Award for her work on the third series.
