Harry Hill is working on a sitcom pilot for the BBC.
Talking about the style of the show, they add: “This is not to be missed! Expect the unexpected with a brilliantly mad story straight from the mind of Harry Hill with an all-star cast.”
The pilot will be filmed in front of a live studio audience. The BBC recently signalled that they are looking to make more studio sitcoms, but very few people are writing them.
It is not currently known whether Hill’s new project – currently titled The Harry Hill Sitcom – will be seen on TV, or if the pilot is being filmed for internal test purposes only.
The recording is due to take place on Wednesday 11th July at Pinewood Studios. Free tickets

He is also currently working on The Remote Controller, a format he co-devised for Channel 4.

Further details on The Harry Hill Sitcom are expected to be revealed in due course.
