Comedian and awards host, Matt Lucas is going to star in a silent comedy series for the BBC, provisionally titled Pompidou.
The idea came from Matt and his talented team of writers; the series will focus on an elderly aristocratic English oddball and will involve guest appearances from international physical comedy performers.
Matt has said he is ‘delighted to be back at the BBC with another show full of new characters’ and he explains that ‘unlike Little Britain and Come Fly with Me, this one has no dialogue at all’.
The show will be an exciting addition to BBC 1 and controller Danny Cohen stated that ‘Matt’s new project is wonderfully original and ambitious. I can’t wait to see what he and his team produce’.
