Radio 4's new comedy pilots

Radio 4 has announced a news series of comedy pilots featuring David Mitchell, Angelos Epithemious, Justin Moorhouse, Will Smith and others.

Happy Tuesdays is a collaboration between BBC radio and TV, and will showcase five new ideas that could be developed into series for either medium.

The season, which starts at 11pm on July 20, follows on from the 2008 series Happy Mondays, which spawned full radio series of the sketch show The Odd Half Hour and impressions show The Secret World.

This year’s line-up is:

  • Anelos Epithemious’s Real Lives. The Shooting Stars regular tries to get to grips with the big issue of the environment by speaking to two experts. The cast also includes Katy Wix, Katherine Jakeways and Rufus Jones.
