Penelope Princess Of Pets
April 2, 2010
Julian Barratt stars in a new one-off comedy special from the mind of Flight Of The Conchords star Kristen Schaal, at the end of the month for Channel 4.
Schaal has written the show, entitled Penelope Princess Of Pets, with her co-star Kurt Braunohler. In it, she plays the titular role of Penelope â€“ a young lady with the ability to talk to animals. Together with her orphan friend Kyle (Braunohler) and her pet bird Ruby, she travels to England where she was only 3762 hours to save the world from the evil MP Thomas Stone (Barratt).
The show was filmed last year, with Mighty Boosh producer Spencer Millman in charge.
The show features Kristen Schaal (Flight of the Conchords), Kurt Braunohler and The Mighty Booshâ€™s own Julian Barratt. It will air as part of Channel 4â€™s Comedy Lab on April 26th.
As soon as we have an exact air-time, and any more details on the show, weâ€™ll post them here for your peelingâ€¦
Editors note: thanks to â€œStar Shaped Oneâ€ for this news story!
Come to the premier party for the Penelope pilot in NYC on April 26th at Union Pool at 8pm and see the whole thing!

Flight Of The Conchords' Kristen Schaal features in today's TV highlights
Kristen Schaal (Mel from Flight Of The Conchords) stars in Penelope Princess of Pets, a one-off special for Comedy Lab.
Comedy Lab: Penelope Princess of Pets C4, 11.05pm
Offbeat one-off special for Comedy Lab featuring Kristen Schaal (Mel from Flight Of The Conchords), her regular live performing partner Kurt Braunohler and The Mighty Booshâ€™s Julian Barratt about a female Dr Doolittle who only has 3,762 hours to save the world from the evil MP for Barking & Dagenham. Utterly silly â€“ and featuring puppets.

Fake pigeons dangling from wires, an alcoholic bird and a woman who can talk to animals.
These are the surreal ingredients of the return of C4â€™s Comedy Lab pilots tonight.
Coincidentally, thereâ€™s also a talking dog you could describe as a comedy lab â€“ as in Labrador.
If youâ€™re a fan of BBC4â€™s Flight Of The Conchords youâ€™ll recognise US comedian Kristen Schaal, who stars as Penelope and wrote this with her pal and co-star Kurt Braunohler.
The Mighty Booshâ€™s Julian Barratt plays an MP who Penelope has just 3,762 days to assassinate. Itâ€™s funny, charming and daffy but will it make a series?
