As regular readers know, the pilot of Toast of London was shown last year as part of Channel 4′s Funny Fortnight.

Matt stars as Stephen Toast, an eccentric middle-aged actor who spends more time dealing with problems off-stage than appearing on it. He lives with his friend Ed Howzer-Black (Robert Bathurst), and other characters include his agent Jane Plough (Doon Mackichan) and acting nemesis Ray Purchase (Harry Peacock).

The pilot as well as the new six-part series, was co-written by Matt and Arthur Matthews.

If you missed it the first time round the pilot is still available on 4OD, and there’s a preview of the new series below.
