Russell Howard is set to write and star in a new series commissioned by Sky 1
The weekly series will be filmed in front of a live studio audience and is part of a two year deal with Sky 1.
The show will air late next year following the comedian’s stand-up world tour, which runs between February and July 2017.
Avalon Television, the production company behind Russell Howard’s Good News, will produce the 14 part series.
The unnamed series will follow the success of his Comedy Central show Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and the more recent Russell Howard & Mum: USA Road Trip, which has been confirmed for a second series.
Russell Howard said: “I am delighted to be making this new show for Sky. It’s obviously the best part of a year away but I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in.”
Adam MacDonald, director of Sky 1, said: “Russell is brilliantly funny and I can't wait for his intelligent and incisive wit to be a big part of Sky 1. His new show with us will be a fantastic mix of everything we love about Russell and lots of new inventive comedy. It will be an incredible addition to Sky 1.”
