BBC One has confirmed that Kevin Bridges has landed his own weekend show.
He is to make a six-part series which mixes his stand-up with documentary elements about how his life, family and friends in Clydebank influenced his comedy.
The show, provisionally titled What’s The Story?, is likely to go out at either 9.30pm or 10.35pm on Friday or Saturday nights.
Bridges said: 'I'm delighted at the news that someone at the BBC has deemed me worthy enough to be let loose with a camera crew in an attempt to make something funny. I'm excited at being given this opportunity and to be able to produce the show from Scotland is an added bonus.
‘It'll be great to see something on national TV made from Scotland that doesn't have an appeal for witnesses before the closing credits.’
BBC One controller Danny Cohen said: 'It's great to have a major new show for BBC One starring one of Scotland's brightest new talents. Kevin is a unique comedian, and he's part of our plan to develop the next generation of talent for BBC One.'
The series will be produced by Open Mike (Scotland).
