lucasDavid Walliams has revealed that he and Matt Lucas are working on a completely new series.

The Little Britain stars are currently writing a combination sketch comedy and sit com, which is expected to air in late 2010 according to the BBC.

The news may disappoint HBO bosses who had enjoyed wild success with Little Britain USA last year, but the American studio have got in from the start of the new series – they will co-produce the new project with the beeb.

“We’re really, really excited and just sort of starting work on that now, so hopefully that will be on towards the end of next year”, said Walliams.

“We’re really confident about it and really pleased with how it’s going. But it’s very early days.”

Walliams went on to explain: “HBO really loved Little Britain USA and wanted us to do more but we felt we wanted to do something fresh. Especially for our audience in Britain.”

We’re just glad to hear that Matt Lucas is working on comedy again…
