Comedy Central U.K. has announced a new 13-episode comedy series that will star comedian and actor Seann Walsh. The series, 'Seann Walsh World,' has been ordered from Open Mike Productions.
The series will focus on Walsh playing a young, unattached comedian who uses a variety of different mediums to create his world, "which is remarkably similar to most 28 year olds."
Walsh has experience working with Comedy Central U.K. He also stars on its 'Big Bad World' program with Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners), Caroline Quentin (Men Behaving Badly) and James Fleet (The Vicar of Dibley).
In addition to that program, Walsh has appeared on the network's 'Grouchy Young Men' program, as well as 'Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow,'' Live at the Apollo,' 'Stand-up for the Week' and '8 Out Of 10 Cats.'
Grant Philpott will be the producer of 'Seann Walsh World.' He is best known for his work on Harry Hill's 'TV Burp.' The program was greenlit by Jill Offman, the Comedy Central U.K. managing director and senior vice president of international content.
Other executive producers include Sarah Farrell for Comedy Central U.K. and Andrew Beint for Open Mike.
The series will begin filming in February, with a premiere scheduled for the spring.
