Mongrels is a fierce puppet-led sitcom from the mind of Adam Miller, which focuses on a gang of vermin hanging around a pub garden. There’s metrosexual fox Nelson, his violent relative Vince, confused cat Marion, psychotic pigeon Kali and the pub’s pampered pooch Destiny.

Following a non-broadcast pilot, the series runs for eight weeks as of Tuesday 22nd June at 10pm, and there’s several connection to ‘our lot’ involved.

Most obviously, the pub’s human owner is played by Tony Way – recently seen in The Last Summer on Earth and familiar from countless comedy cameos and the Channel 4 oddity Blunder. The voice cast includes Ealing Live allumni Lucy Montgomery and Katy Brand, alongside comics Dan Tetsell (Lab Rats), Rufus Jones (Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show) and the legendary Paul Kaye (still perhaps best known as Dennis Pennis)!

You can find out more about Mongrels on the BBC site over yonder, and watch a trailer below.
