Three out of 4
C4 announces trio of new sitcoms
Channel 4 has confirmed the launch of three new home-grown sitcoms.
Head of entertainment Danielle Lux has announced that Peep Show, Green Wing and the Phoenix Nights spin-off Max and Paddy will all form a part of the channel's upcoming schedule.
Peep Show comes with a twist, as the audience will be able to hear the inner thoughts of the two sleazy men at the centre of the action.
The loser flatmates are played by double act David Mitchell and David Webb.
The show - which was called POV during development - will be aired in November - almost a year after it was originally slated to appear.
Lux told MediaGuardian: "Robert and David play two love-hungry young lads. Peep Show can be a bit mucky at times.
Green Wing is a hospital-based comedy drama. whose cast includes Happiness actor Mark Heap and Black Books star Tamzin Greig and is set to hit the schedules sometime next year.
Max and Paddy - which sees the two bouncers from Phoenix Nights touring Britain an a camper van - has been in the pipeline since Peter Kay's original series ended.
