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.
