There's been a string of good news related to Rhys' projects recently. 8)

How To Be A Gentleman has been picked up for a full series after its pilot! :D
CBS Announces 2011-2012 Fall Primetime Schedule

New pilot:
Vic Reeves and Rhys Darby to star in health and safety sitcom pilot
Wednesday 18th May 2011 @ 8pm

Channel 4 have commissioned a sitcom pilot called The Fun Police for their forthcoming Comedy Showcase season.

The 30 minute sitcom has been written by Matt Morgan, who is probably most commonly known for co-presenting the now infamous Russell Brand Radio Show on BBC Radio 2 between 2006 and 2008.

The show is being billed as "a hilarious new sitcom for Channel 4, bought to you by the same creative team behind The IT Crowd." The Fun Police will centre on the trials and tribulations of a small town Health & Safety team.

Shooting Stars co-creator Vic Reeves (pictured) heads up the cast list, alongside New Zealand stand-up comedian Rhys Darby, who is better known in the UK for playing band manager Murray Hewitt in HBO's hit series Flight of the Conchords.

Also on the cast list is Jack Doolan (Cemetery Junction, The Green Green Grass), Kerry Howard (Him & Her, Reggie Perrin), Katy Wix (Not Going Out, The King Is Dead) and Clive Rowe (Tracy Beaker).

This Comedy Showcase pilot will be overseen by Ash Atalla, the producer of classic sitcom The Office, and the Executive Producer on shows including The IT Crowd. The show will be produced via Atalla's own production company Roughcut TV, which is also currently working on a supermarket-set sitcom for Sky called Trollied.

The Fun Police will be Vic Reeves' first sitcom since the surreal BBC six-part programme Catterick, which is co-created with long-term collaborator Bob Mortimer in 2004. Meanwhile, Rhys Darby starred as a magician attempting to get his career back on track in the 2009 Comedy Showcase pilot The Amazing Dermot (which was also produced by Roughcut TV).

The Fun Police pilot will be recorded in front of a live audience at BBC TV Centre on Saturday 28th May 2011. To be in the audience see our free tickets page

Oooh, that's my first week of Sound Of Music rehearsal. :? Plus it's the same week of Amy's Hairspray at the Hollywood Bowl. :? It would be a real quick run in, see the show, and run home for me, but...... it's Rhys! Gotta think.

I'd have to get out of rehearsal early in order to make a 7:30 show, or Pig & Whistle before that. :hrm:

I just watched it. Not much of a fan of Kevin Dillon but I like the rest of the cast.

I wasn't surprised. I wonder if he's going to stay in LA now that the show's been canceled?
