The BBC have released trailers for two of their forthcoming comedy shows with strong TVO connections.
The Life Of Rock With Brian Pern – written, directed and produced by Rhys Thomas – airs from Monday 10th February at 10pm on BBC Four, and features Simon Day as the titular rock god turned documentary host.
He’ll be joined by a whole host of famous faces including Lucy Montgomery, Tony Way, Michael Smiley, Steve Burge, Matt Lucas, Paul Whitehouse, Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer (seemingly reviving Mulligan And O’Hare!), Nigel Havers, Danny John-Jules, Michael Kitchen, David Baddiel, Jools Holland, Rick Wakeman, David Arnold, Peter Gabriel and Queen’s Roger Taylor. Phew!
You can see the trailer below.
One week earlier, Inside No. 9 – the typically macabre anthology series from Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton – begins on BBC Two, also at 10pm, from Wednesday 5th February.
Featuring guest appearances from Katherine Parkinson and Julia Davis amongst others, the show has already wowed critics (including us!), and will be returning for a second series, as confirmed to British Comedy Guide earlier this week.
Those charming gents Reece and Steve introduce the show below, along with a chance to see the previously released trailer from earlier this week.
