A real Lemon...

Bo Selecta star's latest show

Bo’ Selecta creator Leigh Francis is launching a new series based on failed businessman Keith Lemon.

The character has previously appeared in Bo' Selecta spin-off A Bear’s Tale as well as Bo In The USA.

Now he has made a series for ITV2, provisionally titled Keith Lemon's Gap Year, to be launched as part of the channel’s early 2008 schedule.

Here’s a clip:

A second series of Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show was also confirmed at the launch of ITV2’s new line-up, as was the new sketch show Laura, Ben and Him, starring Perrier-winner Laura Solon alongside Ben Willbond and Marek Larwood.

Comedy Cuts, featuring around 50 circuit comics, is also returning; and ITV2 will also be airing series four of Entourage and series three of The Office: An American Wokplace.

Channel controller Zai Bennett said: ‘2007 has been a great year for us - we've continued to prove that ITV2 is the digital destination for audiences wanting brand new original commissions and the very best in US acquisitions.

‘Building on this success I am very proud of our winter 2008 schedule which is packed with exciting drama, new and original comedy and big entertainment.’
