Rhod Gilbert Vs the Sitcom

It was announced last week that Rhod Gilbert is about to dip his toe in the world of sitcom comedy and is currently in the process of creating a show with Steve Coogan and Henry Normals production company Baby Cow.

The show is to be based around his fictional welsh hometown called Llanbobl which has been a long running joke in Rhods stand up shows.  The show is to be called Back to Llanbobl with a pilot episode expected to start shooting in autumn this year.

It has been written by Rhod and also co-written by his wife, fellow comedian Sian Harries. It is also to star fellow radio show co-presenter on BBC wales, Lloyd Langford.
