BBC Three has today announced that it has commissioned a host of comedy shows, including eight pilots which are commissioned for BBC iPlayer.

Zai Bennett, controller for BBC Three, said: “New British comedy is king on BBC Three, so I'm delighted to be able to announce we've commissioned Nick Helm's first TV series, Uncle, and that another one of last year’s Comedy Feed pilots is going to full series in the fantastic People Just Do Nothing (w/t).

"We are also celebrating success on Three by re-commissioning the delightful Pramface and the sublime Him & Her. To ensure we keep finding the hits of the future we are also soon showcasing our latest batch of eight Comedy Feed pilots on BBC iPlayer.”

Him & Her and Pramface have been re-commissioned as part of the moves.

This comes as the BBC announced the appointment of Charlotte Moore as acting controller of BBC One.

Moore takes over from Danny Cohen, who was appointed as new director of television at the BBC earlier this month.
