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 Lemon.

Russell Tovey signs on for dole office comedy
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.

Above: Kaz [aka @WhoGuru] from the USA has been immortalised by Mark M. Merrett of London in CGI. Kaz has been a fan of the show Being Human for many years and commissioned Mark to turn her into a very feminine she-werewolf. Kaz now joins a long list of people who have been turned into artworks by Mark. If you are not sure why I make a fuss about these artworks there is a very simple answer. Mark has suffered from depression, agoraphobia and numerous other disabilities including severe dyslexia. Because of his various conditions he struggles to draw free-hand but has mastered a unique way of compositing CGI on his home computer. His artwork is outstanding. Just one picture, as shown here, can take him more than 12 hours of painstaking work. By the way, Kaz is thrilled with the end result.
