BBC Two show for Sarah Millican
Six-part series ordered
BBC Two has signed up Sarah Millican for her own six-part comedy series.
The programme, provisionally titled simply The Sarah Millican Television Show, will feature a mix of stand-up and guests.
It is the first time she has fronted her own TV show, and BBC commissioner Alan Tyler said: ‘Sarah is a truly unique combination of wit, warmth and killer punchlines.’
The show is to be made by the Glasgow branch of Graham Norton’s company So Television, following a successful pilot earlier in the year. That sample episode revolved around Millican trying to make the nation feel better, similar in tone to her Radio 4 series.
