Filming Begins On This Time With Alan Partridge

Filming has begun on This Time With Alan Partridge, a new six-part comedy starring Steve Coogan, which will air on BBC One later this year.

Alan (Steve Coogan) makes a return to live television when he is asked to stand in as co-host on the evening magazine show This Time – his first TV job since his chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You was cancelled after a guest was fatally shot on air.

The magazine show is a heady mix of consumer affairs, current affairs, highbrow interviews, froth, and promises to be the perfect fit for a man whose broadcasting style has been described as ‘equidistant between chitchat and analysis’.

Joining Steve Coogan on the sofa will be Susannah Fielding as his co-presenter Jennie Gresham, Felicity Montagu as his faithful assistant Lynn, and Tim Key as Simon ‘formerly Sidekick Simon’ Denton.

This Time With Alan Partridge is written by Neil Gibbons, Rob Gibbons, Steve Coogan.
