Channel 4 Is Likely to Order Matt Berry's 'Toast of London' to Series

UK network Channel 4 is close to ordering Matt Berry's pilot Toast of London to series, British Comedy Guide reports. Fans of British comedy surely know Berry from IT Crowd, Snuff Box, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, and just about every other amazing TV comedy to come out of England in the past decade. Toast of London stars Berry as a respected dramatic actor dealing with a career fallout after starring in a controversial play. Written by Matt Berry and Arthur Matthews (Father Ted), the pilot aired last year as a part of Channel 4's series Funny Fortnight. Channel 4 has ordered additional scripts of the show but has yet to officially order more episodes produced, although it looks to be a sure thing. Head over to Vimeo to watch the pilot, so that you can cherish the show for as long as possible before a US network tries to remake it next year.
