‘Yes, Prime Minister’ to return for brand new series on Gold

UKTV’s comedy channel Gold has commissioned a new six-part series of classic satire Yes, Prime Minister, following a 24 year hiatus.

Scripted by the original writing team, Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay, the new episodes will see Rt. Hon Jim Hacker back in office as PM, “leading a coalition government confronting the greatest economic crisis in a generation, with European economies going down the toilet, a tempting energy deal from an unusual source, a leadership crisis with his coalition partners, a Scottish independence referendum and the greatest moral dilemma he has ever faced”.

UKTV’s Director of Commissioning, Jane Rogerson commented: “The political landscape in Britain today is the perfect setting for Yes, Prime Minister to return. I’m thrilled that Gold has enticed Jonathan Lynn and Antony Jay to pen a brand new series, and can’t wait to see this constitutional treasure back on screens across the country.”
