Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer are working on a new show similar to Shooting Stars – as well as their own film.
Reeves said that the BBC’s decision to axe their comedy panel show after 20 tears could be a blessing in disguise, as it would force them to be more inventive.
The pair are working on a comedy set in a hotel – which they promise will be a world away from Fawlty Towers – as well as the new TV show, which Reeves said would not be for the BBC.
He told The Sun: ‘I didn't think we were required at the BBC any more so that's why we decided to go elsewhere."
‘Shooting Stars is getting on for 20 years old so it was probably a good thing the BBC didn't want it anymore. We can go on to be more creative.
‘We are probably doing something that is similar but better. We have had a few ideas for names — one is Lucky Winners. I think that probably is the worst name for it ever but we like it.’
Last week, Reeves revealed: ‘We're writing a film. It's probably going to be about a hotel and some people trying to make a hotel work.’
‘It’s going to be nothing like Fawlty Towers, it's going to be more like a Mike Leigh film.’
