News: Alan Partridge To Get His PA Back – More Details Of New Series Revealed

Felicity Montagu is to join Steve Coogan in the BBC's new Alan Partridge series. She will once again play Lynn, the long-suffering PA to the DJ.

Steve Coogan confirmed the news at BBC Worldwide’s Showcase in Liverpool where Coogan and Christine Langan, CEO of Baby Cow Productions were talking on a panel about TV comedy.

Further casting will be announced in due course.

The new series is written by Neil Gibbons, Rob Gibbons and Steve Coogan. Directed by Neil Gibbons and Rob Gibbons. The producer is Ted Dowd and the executive producers are Christine Langan and Steve Coogan. It is a Baby Cow production for BBC.

The six-part series will be shown on BBC One later this year, a quarter of a century after Partridge's BBC debut.
