The BBC is set to pilot a new late night topical comedy chat show, featuring celebrities.
Tonight With… will use technology to pair the guests with depictions of famous world leaders.
Producers explain: “TV history will be made at the recording of this hilarious late-night comedy chat-show, where top celebrities are invited on to take a sideways swipe at the big issues facing Britain today. But rather than chat with a heavy-weight host, our guests will be jostling with one of the most famous leaders in the world!
“This show will be the first of its kind on TV – bringing together cutting-edge technology with top celebrities. What could possibly go wrong?”
This is the latest topical format the BBC is working on. Existing formats include The Mash Report and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, the latter of which starts a third series at the end of March. BBC Two has also commissioned The Ranganation, a topical show featuring a focus group helmed by Romesh Ranganathan.
