Radio 4 has commissioned the new comedy sketch, which will begin this autumn. There will be 6 episodes of ‘2525’ and it will be done in a similar style to ‘Little Britain’.
The show will be taking the 6.30pm slot on Radio 4 and Matt Lucas’s company John Stanley Productions are also looking for comedy writers to help with some ideas for the show. Matt has created the show with his friend, Ashley Baker, who was also involved in creating BBC One’s ‘The Matt Lucas Awards’ with him.
The brief for scripts gives a small insight into what we can expect from the sketch, it states ‘We are looking for both returning characters and one-off sketches about life in the distant future’ and states that the show will feature ‘characters from every walk of life whether human, alien, computer, cyborg or mutation.’
