Slings & Arrows – a health & safety sitcom

The BBC have commissioned a new sitcom for BBC One, entitled Slings & Arrows. Written by Ben Elton and David Haig, who previously worked together on Elton’s 1995-96 sitcom The Thin Blue Line, in which Haig co-starred alongside Rowan Atkinson as the officious DI Grim.
Haig will star as “exasperated everyman” Gerald Measley in the pilot, which will be recorded at Teddington Studios this Saturday (4th August).
Producers say: “Gerald runs the Baselricky Council Health & Safety Department with a team of misfits who are hell bent on causing as much chaos as humanly possible in their mission to make Britain safer.
“This cracking new sitcom boasts physical comedy, a gag rate to die for and beautifully heart-warming performances from an exceptional ensemble cast.”  Read More.
