After Darkplace

Garth Marenghi duo's new project

The team behind Garth Marenghi's Darkplace are working on another Channel 4 series.

Details of Richard Ayoade and Matthew Holness’s next project are being kept under wraps, but it will be called Deano’s After Dark.

The Perrier and Chortle Award-winning duo are trying out new material for the show at the Riverside Studios in West London this month.

The venue said only: “The first series was a spoof horror, so expect more of the same.”

Try-out gigs take place at 8pm every Monday from next week to August 1.
