This is quite exciting. Paul Rose, who you might know as Mr Biffo off of sadly-defunct Teletext games page Digitiser, has got a couple of sitcoms in development. In today's blog post, he's finally revealed a few more details. With comments from Zombie Dave.
Too Much Too Young is designed for the 8:30pm on BBC ONE slot. Tricky, but how excellent would it be to have something written by Paul Rose in that slot? Even better, how about something starring Dylan Moran! Dylan Moran in a prime-time BBC ONE sitcom? Excellent! It also stars Maxine Peake, off of dinnerladies and Shameless, and is directed by Black Books's Nick Woods.

A little less is known about Now The Weather, except that it's for Channel 4, won't have as many trad elements as TMTY, and will star Mark Heap! It's quite remarkable, but as Biffo points out, this will be his first starring role, provided everything goes to plan. It'll be directed by Michael Cumming, off of the Brasseye programme. Both pilots will be going into production within the next month.
