This Is Your Pilot Speaking! brings some of the most original, controversial and downright funny new talents in British comedy writing together with leading comic voices, including Mitch Benn, Kevin Eldon, Hugh Dennis and Jon Holmes.
With plot premises ranging from what happens when an atheist finds himself working for God in the afterlife ('Working for the Big Man') to the trials and tribulations of being a young single girl about town who just happens to be a dominatrix ('Slaving Away'), This Is Your Pilot Speaking! offers plenty of laughs whatever your tastes.
The pilots featured are:
- 'The Un-Cynical Cannibal', starring Richard Glover, Simon Kane, Daniel Lawrence Taylor, Bobby Mair, and Sophie Henderson. Complete with zombies, walrus pirates, and a talking goldfish called Alfie, this fast-paced gag-fest blends musical hall comedy with surreal nonsense to laugh-out-loud effect.
- 'Catching Up with the Girls', starring Louise Ford, Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Carrie Quinlan, Grainne Maguire and Andy Goddard. A sharp yet warmhearted comedy about what happens after university, 'Catching Up with the Girls' will appeal to anyone who has ever had an awkward evening with old friends.
- 'Working for the Big Man', starring Kevin Eldon, Felicity Monagu and Mitch Benn. Committed rationalist and atheist Ralph gets an unwelcome surprise when he dies on his honeymoon. He discovers that God does exist after all, and worse yet God has a job for him.
- 'Slaving Away', starring Hugh Dennis, Miranda Kane and Jon Holmes. Meet (the other) Miranda. She's a cheerful, happy-go-lucky single girl in London...who just happens to be a professional dominatrix. From the well-appointed dungeon in her flat, Miranda services her clients with flogging and extreme correction and (if she's lucky) gets the odd slave to pay for the honour of doing her vacuuming.
- 'The Hub', starring Susy Kane, Alex Kirk, Howard Gossington, Anjella Macintosh and Joel Morris. 24 meets Blackadder in this fast-paced, irreverent, madcap comedy set in a world of secrets, shadows and utter stupidity.
