Congratulation!

Anna and Katy land full C4 series

Anna Crilly and Katy Wix have landed a full series of their Channel 4 sketch show.

Six episodes of Anna And Katy Television Programme have been commissioned following a successful pilot which aired last summer.

The Comedy Lab pilot featured celebrity cameos and daft TV pastiches such as daytime show Congratulation, in which people write in to be congratulated for completing life's minor tasks. Channel 4 say the series will also feature up and coming talents on the sketch comedy circuit.

Anna and Katy said: ‘We are beyond chuffed to get a full series with Channel 4. We'll aim not to balls it up. Thank you.’

While Channel 4’s commissioning editor Nerys Evans joked: ‘They're so funny you'll think they're men.’

Shane Allen, head of Channel 4 comedy added: ‘Channel 4 is the place to take risks and give opportunities to comedy's mavericks and lunatics. Katy & Anna are both and we're so thrilled they wanted to make their break with us.’

The duo are as familiar on TV as they are on the live circuit, as Crilly's previous credits include Lead Balloon and Sorry I've Got No Head and Wix's include Torchwood and Not Going Out.

Their show will be produced by Roughcut TV's Jon Petrie with The Office producer Ash Atalla as executive producer.

Here’s a clip from the pilot:
