Man Like Mobeen comes to BBC One

Terrestrial broadcast for Guz Khan comedy

Guz Khan's comedy series Man Like Mobeen is to air on  BBC One following its successful  launch on BBC Three .

The four-part series was originally launched on iPlayer last month, but will make its terrestrial TV debut this weekend.

The first two episodes, Bagpuss and Wifey Riddim, will air from 11.30pm on Sunday, with the next two the following week, after Match of the Day.

In the series, Khan plays a 28-year-old Muslim from Birmingham, 'who has a job, doesn't know any terrorists, is pretty excellent when it comes to social skills and… maybe, just maybe, dealt drugs for a little bit.'

Khan has said: 'Mobeen epitomises the funny yet complex realities of life for young working class men and women in Britain today.

'Inner-city Birmingham, in which the show is set, gets almost no positive representation in the media. Man Like Mobeen will at the very least give a 'real' depiction of life in the ends.'
