Channel 4 have commissioned a new entertainment series tentatively titled Britain Today, Tonight starring actor and comic Kayvan Novak.

Britain Today, Tonight is a spoof tabloid news show which promises to shine a light on contemporary Britain, with Novak taking the helm as an American anchorman as well as the reporters and even some members of the public.

Featuring brand new characters specially created for the show, the series promises to see Novak – creator of Fonejacker and Facejacker – causing havoc on the streets of Britain. In a similar vein to his previous work, Novak will combine disguises and hidden cameras to wind up celebrities, politicians and the public at large.

No word has yet been released on when the show will air.
