Comedian Joe Lycett is to return to Channel 4 screens with his own series.
Joe Lycett has been a regular on various TV series in recent years including here on ITV’s Celebrity Squares.
“Having spent most of my life sending arsey emails to companies and local councils it is a great treat to now have an amazing crack team to escalate my consumer rights fight and needlessly waste corporate time. If you’ve been scammed, messed about by a company, or just want to contest a parking fine, then worry not: I’ve got your back.” – Joe Lycett
Following a successful pilot outing of Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back, Channel 4 has now decided to run with a full series of the format. The six episodes will air in a 30 minute slot on the network and will follow Joe as he turns his well-honed skills of complaining to dish out a hilarious dose of consumer justice on behalf of the people of the UK.
Known for his epic escalating battles with officials as he lodges complaints and talks his way out of almost anything, including his now infamous parking fine, Joe Lycett is turning his hand to helping out the great British public with all their genuine consumer complaints.
From scams and poor customer service to shocking practices and unacceptable consumer standards the series will cover a range of consumer gripes, feature stories relating to consumer issues and go undercover in Joe‘s quest for consumer justice. The approach may be humorous but the results could be life changing.
“Joe Lycett is a rare talent, who manages to publically lampoon everyone from parking wardens to Donald Trump with wit, warmth and utter charm. His infamous tirades against petty injustices are totally on point and we’re delighted that following a hugely successful pilot we are commissioning a series of his uniquely authored consumer show for Channel 4” – Factual Entertainment commissioning editor Sarah Lazenby
No broadcast date has been set by the broadcaster for the series as yet.
