Inbetweeners stars land Sky1 comedy

Sky1 has ordered a full series of Chickens, a comedy that was piloted on Channel 4 last year.

Produced by Big Talk Productions, the comedy is written by and stars Simon Bird and Joe Thomas, who appeared in the Inbetweeners together, and Jonny Sweet.

The comedy is due to be broadcast on Sky in 2013 and will be executive produced by Kenton Allen, chief executive of Big Talk.

He said: “Winning our first commission for Sky1 is a very significant moment for Big Talk. I know that Simon, Jonny and Joe will play a huge role in the future story of British Comedy and it’s particularly thrilling that Sky1 are helping them make the big leap forward with their own authored series.”

The series was commissioned by Sky comedy head Lucy Lumsden.
