Friends legend David Schwimmer is heading back to the sitcom game with a role in the UK-set series, which was created by Nick Mohammed for Sky One…
Nick Mohammed’s new Sky One comedy series Intelligence has released a first trailer.
The six-part project is a workplace comedy series based in Cheltenham and set in the UK’s highly regarded Government Communications Headquarters – “a weedier, geekier, more bureaucratic version of MI5 and MI6”. When a power-hungry, maverick NSA agent (Schwimmer) comes over to join an inept and tactless computer analyst (Mohammed) and a newly-formed team tackling cybercrime, everything they know is shaken up.
Take a look…
Mohammed said this of the project when it was first unveiled:
“Getting to work with David has been an absolute dream come true. He’s collaborative, honest and exquisitely funny and I couldn’t be more delighted and flattered by his involvement. On saying that, we did initially offer the part to the local shoplifter from Blackpool, but he wasn’t available sadly. Either way, we hope that everyone at GCHQ is as excited about this series as we are. I presume they were aware of this series being green-lit way before we ever were…”
Intelligence will get underway on Sky One on Tuesday February 18th.
