Comedy Central adds to UK originals

ViacomCBS-owned Comedy Central has greenlit a pair of original series in the UK, fronted by comedians Sara Pascoe and Jon Richardson.

Guessable (8×60’) will be produced by Tuesday’s Child Television. The panel series involves two celebrity teams competing to identify the famous name or object inside a mystery box.

Pascoe will host the show with John Kearns on hand as her assistant, while Alan Davies and Darren Harriott are team captains, in a format that puts a twist on classic family games.

Produced by Rumpus Media, Channel Hopping with Jon Richardson (6×60’) will see the British comic present a weekly digest of the world’s TV.

In each episode, Richardson gives his take on headlines from around the world, clips, terrible soap opera acting and more.

The new programmes come hot on the heels of the first commission for Comedy Central UK from Sebastian Cardwell, deputy director of programmes, since his role was expanded across the ViacomCBS portfolio earlier this year.

Comedy Game Night, which first aired on Channel 5 as Celebrity Game Night, will debut on Comedy Central with Liza Tarbuck returning as host, alongside team captains Sue Perkins and Guz Khan.
