"It Crowd" Creator Plans Sci-Fi/Comedy Show

12 February 2015 7:49 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Graham Linehan, the creator of beloved British sitcom "The It Crowd," is planning a new sci-fi comedy TV series.

Entitled "The Cloud," the story follows the crew of Cloud Station 13 which is in orbit around Earth. The station is set up to protect the vast amounts of information humanity now hoards on its devices - the majority of which comprises selfies, pictures of kittens and porn.

The disparate group manning the hub are aren't technical geniuses, a big problem as the largely voice-activated ship is unreliable at best.

Adam Buxton ("The Persuasionists") is co-creating the sitcom with Lineman. Channel 4 has commissioned a pilot which will shoot this Spring. Buxton, Aisling Be and Jamie Demetriou will star.

Fresh Meat series 4: final run to air in 2015

16 January 2015 4:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong's university comedy Fresh Meat will conclude later this year with its fourth and final series...

All good things... as the saying goes. It's been confirmed today that Channel 4's university-set comedy series Fresh Meat will end at the conclusion of its fourth series, due to arrive later this year.

The show, which stars Zawe AshtonJoe ThomasJack Whitehall, Charlotte Ritchie, Kimberley Nixon and - in series 3 - the brilliant Faye Marsay, arrived in 2011. Over three series so far, it's told the story of a bunch of Manchester freshers (and Howard) finding themselves against a messy backdrop of student life, ill-advised hook-ups and even more ill-advised soul patches.

Fresh Meat comes written by Peep Show's Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, who will also be waving goodbye to Mark and Jez after that show's ninth series airs later this year.

Celebrating Black Books' best episodes

9 January 2015 2:28 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dylan Moran and Graham Linehan's Channel 4 sitcom Black Books, starring Bill Bailey and Tamsin Greig, was comedy genius. Here's why...

Everyone loves second-hand bookshops, don’t they? The satisfaction of leafing through some dusty volume of antiquarian musings, the rich scent of aged leather bindings, redolent of the past… Add to all that the opportunity to indulge in some intellectual posing and impress the philosophy student lounging in the corner, and you’ve got yourself a full Saturday afternoon’s entertainment.

That is, of course, unless you happen to find yourself in one particular Bloomsbury establishment, presided over by a certain Bernard Black. Make no mistake: our Bernard (Dylan Moran) may have an aesthete’s tousled pallor, but there’s nothing remotely poetic about his attitude to running a shop. Only dimly familiar with the concept of customer service, he rules his domain with a rod of iron. »

The It Crowd's Graham Linehan on Us remake: "Don't do my show"

6 January 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Graham Linehan has hinted that the upcoming Us remake of The It Crowd will be a departure from the original series.

NBC previously attempted to adapt the Channel 4 sitcom for a 2007 pilot, producing a near shot-for-shot remake, but Linehan told Digital Spy that he wants the network's second attempt to diverge from the UK series.

"It's one of the few things I've done that could translate," he said. "You just have to pull back on the surrealism and concentrate more on the character comedy - the Americans do character comedy so beautifully, so I think you have to adapt it to suit that.

"So I'm going over [to Los Angeles] to say to them, 'Please don't do my show' - or do my show, just a suitable American version.

"I'm really glad they're giving me the chance to pitch that to them - it's better to start off with a template that actually gives you a chance. »

Graham Linehan considering Douglas Reynholm spin-off

1 January 2015 11:23 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could Matt Berry be returning to his hilarious role from The It Crowd? Graham Linehan hopes so...

When an actor can make a line as simple as "father!" into a quotable highlight of an episode, he is surely a favourite to writers. It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, then, that Graham Linehan loves working with Matt Berry.

Now, Mr Linehan has gone so far as to suggest a spin-off for Douglas Reynholm from The It Crowd.

"I'd really love to do a Douglas spinoff of The It Crowd," he said. See? We weren't lying or anything.

Elaborating a bit, he added that "I could easily spend an hour, or half an hour, with Douglas. He's my favourite way of making fun of people that I really loathe, like Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump. I basically just have happen to him all the things that I'd love to happen to them, »

Miranda: detractors unlikely to see comedian fall on her face

1 January 2015 1:18 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Inventive and well-acted sitcom bows out after 20 episodes, blending traditional slapstick with painfully funny originality

The final episode of a hit comedy (Friends, The It Crowd, Gavin and Stacey) is usually a lap of honour round the media, collecting the valedictory gifts of extended episodes and spin-off documentaries in which celebrities nominate golden moments.

But there’s another sort of show for which the laments of the goodbye back-slappers risk being drowned out by the backlashers holding their own leaving party. It will happen to Mrs Brown’s Boys and Derek and it happened to Miranda.

Miranda's pratfalls have been done with panache, and I will miss them

1 January 2015 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Miranda Hart’s sitcom will receive a mixed farewell when it ends for good on New Year’s Day, but I salute its originality and scholastic fascination with comedic conventions

The final episode of a hit sitcom is usually a lap of honour round the media: The It Crowd, Friends and Gavin & Stacey were awarded some or all of the traditional valedictory gifts of extended episodes, background documentaries and celebs choosing golden moments.

But there is another sort of show for which the laments of the goodbye back-slappers risk being drowned out by the backlashers holding their own goodbye celebration. In a preview of what will happen to Mrs Brown’s Boys and Derek, this two-faced departure applies to Miranda. Miranda Hart’s self-starring, self-written and self-named comedy will leave TV in a final episode on New Year’s Day.
