LIVING

The Living channel (it’s on Sky) has commissioned its first ever scripted UK comedy for a programme about the comeback of fictional ex-Page Three girl Gayle Tuesday, who is of course, played by Brenda Gilhooly.

The hour-long pilot is being filmed in a documentary style and will air on Living in September.

In the show, we’ll follow Gayle’s progress as she attempts to revive her career in showbusiness, including botox treatment, charity work and a reality cookery show.

The script has been written by Harry Hill, who will also appear in the pilot, along with chef Heston Blumenthal and Pineapple Dance Studios star Louie Spence.

Other cameos in the programme will come from Ainsley Harriott, Toyah Willcox, Paul O’Grady and Hollyoaks actress Roxanne McKee.

“Gayle is back, and where else would she want to be than on Living, the UK’s top celebrity channel,” said the Living TV Group’s head of commissioning Mark Sammon.

“We know that Living’s young audience love scripted comedy on the channel, like US hit Cougar Town, so we’re very excited to have made our first commissioning step into this genre and to have secured the services of such a great comedy writer and performer in Brenda.”

Digital TV channel LIVING is set to add a bit of excitement to January’s TV line-up with the highly-anticipated return of top US drama Grey’s Anatomy Thursdays at 10pm starting tonight (January 21st).

Newlyweds McDreamy, Meredith and co are back for more, work, life and love high-drama in the Seattle Grace Hospital.

Series five came to a dramatic close as both George (TR Knight) and Izzie’s (Katherine Heigl) lives hung in the balance. The series six opener finds the residents and interns dealing with the aftermath of George’s tragic death with more losses, of sorts, on the way.

Having joined the cast during series five, Jessica Capshaw’s (The Practice, The L Word) role as love-lorn paediatric resident Arizona Robbins moves into the forefront of the award winning hospital drama, as her relationship with Dr Callie Torres (Sara Ramerez) moves to the new level.

To celebrate the launch of the new sixth series there’s a fabulous fan guide created from the results of the Grey’s Anatomy Ultimate Fan Survey which many readers took part in.
