Jack Dee could be fronting his own comedy panel show for Sky Atlantic.
The Lead Balloon star last week made a pilot of the show called Don’t Sit In The Front Row, which will not be broadcast.
The format has the panel of comedians – who included Phill Jupitus for the pilot – shaping routines based on information gleaned from people in the front row of the audience.
Producers Citrus Television have been working on the idea for a while, with a version featuring Jo Brand being in development as long ago as April 2010. Other pilots were scheduled last year.
Dee previously made a pilot of a topical panel show called Us Vs Them for Sky1 last year, but the idea was not picked up.
