If you’re a fan of The Inbetweeners then you’ll be interested to know that Joe Thomas and Simon Bird have landed a series for their First World War sitcom, Chickens.

MSN TV UK are reporting that Sky1 HD has picked up the sitcom (six episodes) after a pilot was screened by Channel 4 last year.

In the series, Thomas and Bird, alongside series co-writer Jonny Sweet, play three hapless conscientious objectors in a sleepy British village trying to justify their absence from the frontline.

Sky’s head of comedy Lucy Lumsden said: “We have fallen in love with those naughty chickens. We are delighted to give such a talented bunch a home.”

The series will be screened next year.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
