Comedian Jason Lewis has been commissioned for a 30 minute pilot for BBC Three.
Following on from the success of his Sniggers With Attitude sketches for the BBC comedy website, The Jason Lewis Experience will see a mix of pre-recorded sketches featuring Jason’s impersonations of a variety of celebrities including Jay Z.
According to the BBC the pilot will see a number of the characters from Sniggers With Attitude joined by new ones, including David Cameron, Prince Harry and Dizzee Rascal.
Cheryl Taylor, Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning, said: "Jason is an incredibly talented young comedian, who has so far starred alongside some comedy veterans as well as building up a loyal online fan base for his own work.
"We are delighted to have commissioned a pilot featuring some of his best characters and look forward to a host of new ones."
The show will be filmed in September and air later this year. To see more of Lewis on the BBC click here.
