FILMING has begun on the second series of Jason Cook’s BBC Two sitcom Hebburn, starring Chris Ramsey. Writer Cook told the Shields Gazette: ‘Everyone is more than excited to get started with the filming. We had a read-through of the scripts recently and it was just phenomenal.’

MILES JUPP is starring in a cricketing comedy to raise funds for The Lord’s Taverners. On Her Majesty’s Secret Wicket is a full-production radio-style comedy about an elite band of Victorian era cricketers, who combine spy work for the Queen with their exploits on the pitch. The first episode is available for free download with those who enjoy it invited to make a donation to the charity. To hear it, visit secretwicket.co.uk.

THE AMERICAN remake of The Inbetweeners is to get another airing on British TV. MTV has bought the rights to the short-lived, 12-episode series, which it will air from September 9. The show, starring Joey Pollari, Bubba Lewis, Zack Pearlman and Mark L. Young, previously aired on E4 last year.

COUNT ARTHUR STRONG will be getting a repeat run on BBC Two in the autumn, co-writer Graham Linehan has tweeted.
