News: Harry Hill Working On Cooking Show & Sitcom With New Partner

Comedian Harry Hill has teamed up with production company CPL Productions to launch Nit TV.

The new joint venture will see CPL Productions and Hill growing the company together, with CPL acting as the production company for all programmes.

The first commission on their slate is for a two series deal (8 x 30’) with Sky for comedy cookery show Harry Hill’s Tea-Time – a programme featuring Harry’s usual brand of madcap family friendly fun with special star guests.

Nit TV has also tied up a script development deal with the BBC for a sitcom created by, and starring, Harry Hill.  Based on his best-selling comic-memoir, Livin’ The Dreem: A Year In My Life...Probably, it promises a heady mix of tall tales from Harry’s life at home with his mum and even taller tales of celebrity encounters from the centre of the showbiz whirlwind, Bexhill.

Harry Hill commented today: “It’s great to be working with Danielle and Murray at CPL and finally finding a permanent home for all my TV ideas. This new teatime show is a natural fit for Sky – we’re both risk takers! The sitcom idea is one that’s been bubbling under for a while and I’m looking forward to working with Shane Allen at BBC Comedy who’s been a great supporter of mine.”

CPL Productions Managing Director Danielle Lux commented:  “We’re overjoyed to be collaborating with Harry Hill, one of the UK’s most popular and unique performers over the last two decades. His creative vision and irreverent approach is a perfect fit for CPL.”
