Radio 2 picks up Susan Calman panel show
Susan Calman is to host a new Radio 2 panel show.
The commission of Listomania follows the success of a pilot which aired during the station's Comedy Week last month.
Panelists make and examine lists, 'from the magnificent to the mundane'.
The show is made in-house at the BBC with producers Sam Bryant and Adnan Ahmed,and executive producer Jane Berthoud.
Berthoud said: 'We’re absolutely delighted that Susan’s hosting Listomania. She’s hugely popular with the guests and the audiences and is an excellent host – quick-witted, generous, and very, very funny.
'The format and Susan’s approach will make it something of an antidote to the boys-club feel of some panel shows. But above all, it’s just a great programme that we can’t wait to make.'
Six new episodes have been commissioned, to air next year
