Tom Basden’s play Party, which was premiered in Edinburgh last year and won a Fringe First award, is being adapted into a four-part sitcom for Radio 4.
The series follows a group of young idealists trying to set up a brand new political party and starts on March 10.
It stars Basden, Tim Key, Anna Crilly and Katy Wix.
The series is one of many new comedy shows commissioned by Radio 4, with forthcoming productions including Sarah Millican’s Support Group.
Written by and starring Millican, the cast also includes Simon Day, Emma Fryer and Mark Heap.
Meanwhile, Ronnie Corbett has teamed up with the writers of TV sitcom Sorry, Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent, for a new series called When the Dog Dies.
Corbett stars as Sandy Hopper, a retired hotel manager, who has promised his children that he will downsize and get rid of his lodger Dolores, played by Liza Tarbuck, when his dog dies.
The comedy starts in April.
This season also sees the return I’ve Never Seen Star Wars with Marcus Brigstocke, and Clare In The Community, starring Sally Phillips.
