This Time With Alan Partridge coming this year to the BBC!

Finally we get some information regarding Alan Partridge’s (aka Steve Coogan) return to the BBC. Reports indicate that filming has begun on a six part series called This Time With Alan Partridge which will hit airwaves later this year.

Partridge was created in 1991 by Steve Coogan and Armando Iannucci where as sports reporter Partridge kept us updated on the BBC Radio 4’s spoof current affairs show  On the Hour. Since then Alan has stormed TV, been fired and “bounced back!” Now he finally comes back to the BBC as Alan is handed a career lifeline – the chance to temporarily stand in as co-host on evening weekday show This Time.

Coogan will be joined in the series by Susannah Fielding (Black Mirror, The Great Indoors) plays his female co-presenter Jennie Gresham, as well as Tim Key, who plays Simon ‘formerly Sidekick Simon’ Denton, who first appeared in Partridge’s online series Mid Morning Matters.

The new series is written by Coogan, Neil Gibbons and Rob Gibbons, who also direct. It is produced by Coogan’s BBC Worldwide-backed indie Baby Cow Productions and is exec produced by Coogan and Christine Langan with Ted Dowd as producer. It was ordered for BBC One by Shane Allen, Controller of Comedy Commissioning and Commissioning Editor Kate Daughton.
