Tovey latest to land comedy pilot at ITV
ITV's comedy rejuvenation is
continuing with Him & Her's Russell Tovey the latest to land a pilot. According
to Broadcast Now, a non-TX pilot from the makers of Rev is being made.
The Job Lot will be set in a job
centre, with indications that the show will chase a similar market to the
channel's one returning comedy hit, Benidorm. Miranda's Sarah Hadland will
co-star in the Big Talk production. It's the latest in a series of
new comedy ideas being trialled by the channel, following new pilots with John Barrowman,
Jonathan Ross, Alistair McGowan, Dom Joly and Leigh Francis's character Keith

Being Human and Him
& Her star to film a new sitcom from the makers of Rev
Actor Russell Tovey is to film a new
sitcom called The Job Lot. So far only a pilot episode is being made but if
successful, a series will air on ITV1. No further cast details have been
released but the pilot is set in an unemployment office and it's being made by
Big Talk Productions, the company behind Rev. It's also responsible for Friday
Night Dinner and Tovey's hit BBC3 series, Him & Her. The Job Lot would
be the company's first ITV1 sitcom but last year it made the channel's Show Me
the Funny and its most recent production is Chickens, a First World War
sitcom on Channel 4.
