"This is great... we don't wanna make it." Delaney said that was BBC's reaction to his and Sharon Horgan's Catastrophe pilot script. "They were lovely about it, but said maybe it wasn't the right thing for their channel," added Horgan, who was speaking at a luncheon promoting their show's final season. "It did get a lot better from that original script!" Delaney agreed, saying: "Channel 4 deserves a lot of credit for helping shape it into what it became." He also quipped: "And also, I mean, great networks – which the BBC obviously is – sometimes make horrible mistakes."
