'15' goes into 2

Sean Lock's sitcom gets BBC transfer

Sean Lock's comedy 15 Storeys High is transferring to BBC2.

His downbeat sitcom has already aired on BBC Choice, but will receive a wider audience when it goes out on BBC2 from April.

The Perrier-nominated comic is also working on a second series for broadcast on BBC Choice's successor, BBC3.

The show, set in a bleak tower block, started life on Radio 4 and stars Lock as the intolerant Vince, sharing a flat with naive Errol, played by Benedict Wong,

Lock has also just signed with comedy management agency Off The Kerb, as has fellow stand-up Simon Evans.
