Tim Clark22 February 2012
ITV's comedy rejuvenation is continuing with Him & Her's Russell Tovey the latest to land a pilot.
According to Broadcast Now, a non-TX pilot from the makers of Rev is being made.
The Job Lot will be set in a job centre, with indications that the show will chase a similar market to the channel's one returning comedy hit, Benidorm.
Miranda's Sarah Hadland will co-star in the Big Talk production.
It's the latest in a series of new comedy ideas being trialled by the channel, following new pilots with John Barrowman, Jonathan Ross, Alistair McGowan, Dom Joly and Leigh Francis's character Keith Lemon.
