Comedy Central UK today announced that it has greenlit three new shows, including comedic panel show The Complaints Department.
The Complaints Department (6 x 60’) is a panel show that sees two teams of well-known comics revelling in the thing this country might well be best at – complaining.
Over a series of rounds, the teams will be presented with the finest of moans, whines and protests from the great British public and beyond, from the internet, tweets, interviews and good-old fashioned stiff letters. As well as finding the funny in the complaints, the teams will be bringing their own gripes to get off their chests.
Sebastian Cardwell, Deputy Director of Programmes at ViacomCBS Networks UK, said: "It’s exciting to be further establishing Comedy Central UK as the go-to destination for brilliant British comedy, with new commissions that will fit perfectly within our expanding slate of originals, These three new rich and varied formats with top-tier comedic talent at the heart are guaranteed to keep our audiences laughing."
Will Macdonald, Monkey’s Creative Director and Executive Producer added: "There’s nothing the people of this nation love more than being righteously indignant, apart from perhaps claiming an amazing fact they’ve heard on the bus as their own. So, we’re excited to have created two shows looking at the funny side of the very British art forms of quality complaining and showing off knowledge which may or may not be true."
