Karl Pilkington is heading to Sky 1 for his first scripted series, Sick of It, and a new trailer gives us a first look at the comedy.
Promising to take us into the mind of Karl Pilkington, Sick of It sees the TV presenter take centre stage after years of working alongside Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Known as the producer on their XFM radio show, he went on to appear on The Ricky Gervais Show, then present Sky travel series An Idiot Abroad. Now, his persona is getting the sitcom treatment, following his character’s attempts to make sense of the modern world after the loss of his girlfriend.
Now living with his elderly auntie, Karl’s closest companion is Inner Self; the voice in his head who says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others. As Karl attempts to move on from the break up and sort out his life, the voice in his head appears periodically to guide, criticise and dispense his unorthodox philosophy of life, with interesting results.
The first scripted series to be written by Karl Pilkington alongside Richard Yee, the series will premiere on Sky 1 in the UK and on streaming service NOW TV. Here’s the trailer.
