The Stage News has announced that Billie Piper, better known to us as companion Rose Tyler, has been hired to star in an upcoming new BBC Three comedy named Tom and Jenny…
The comedy pilot was announced today at the Edinburgh International Television Festival by BBC3 controller Zai Bennett.
Tom and Jenny has been described by the BBC as “a high-octane comedy pilot about a feuding couple who, despite splitting up, refuse to leave the house they’ve bought together”.
It has been written by Lee Hupfield and is directed by Ben Palmer, who directed The Inbetweeners Movie.
Bennett has been controller of BBC3 for the past five months, and has already announced a new comedy series with Sharon Horgan called Life Story, as well as a comedy about two teenagers called Pramface.
