It has been written by Victoria Pile, Robert Harley, James Henry, Oriane Messina and Fay Rusling (Green Wing), and Omar Khan.

Nana Hughes, head of ITV comedy, said: “Piglets was a script that had me laughing from the first page through to the last page. I am very excited to be working with Robert Harley and Sam Leifer along with the queens of comedy: Victoria Pile and Caroline Leddy.’’

Pile said: “So delighted to be part of ITVX’s strong commitment to comedy, and grateful for Nana Hughes’ terrific support and enthusiasm for Piglets, not least in helping us secure such a diverse range of talent.”
