It’s Kevin, starring and written by comedian Kevin Eldon and produced by the BBC, will see six half hour episodes air early in 2013.

Kevin said: “I have always liked chaffinches. The money I may receive from this show may well allow me buy more pictures of chaffinches.”

‘So what is it? It’s sketches, it’s songs, it’s characters, it’s guests, it’s a man who’s old enough to know better mucking about, with help from a number of his comedy friends.’ The Beeb press office say.

Kevin Eldon’s list of credits includes many comedies of the last 20 years, including: Big Train, Brass Eye, I’m Alan Partridge, Smack The Pony, Nighty Night, Hot Fuzz, Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, How TV Ruined Your Life, Four Lions, This Is Jinsy, Arthur Christmas, Hunderby and plenty more.

Cheryl Taylor said: “Kevin Eldon is a very special comedian indeed and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to showcase his many talents on BBC Two.”

It’s Kevin is a BBC Comedy Production, from the team Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle. It will be produced by Richard Webb and executive produced by the BBC’s Head of Comedy Mark Freeland. It’s a mixture of studio and location filming.
