Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule commissioned at ITV
Harry Hill is returning to his spiritual home of ITV with a new gameshow it has been announced, and it’s as ridiculous as you would expect from the large collared comedian…
Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule is a panel show that sees Harry Hill presiding over two teams tasked with saving planet earth from alien invasion. Each team must find clips, people, basically anything that is fun or funny enough for Harry to place in a capsule which, in the event that we’re invaded by aliens, we can present to them to demonstrate earthlings are good fun and therefore worthy of saving.
Over a series of rounds, the two teams of two present Harry with fun stuff which Harry must adjudicate on and ultimately decide what’s in and what’s out of the Fun Capsule with the triumphant team winning bragging rights. Along the way there will be sketches, studio items and special guests. And the occasional appearance of an alien.
“It’s great to be back on ITV with an all new format that finally tackles the problem of an imminent and prolonged war with space aliens!” commented Hill.
“We’re really excited to have Harry back on ITV,” added ITV’s Comedy Commissioning Editor Saskia Schuster “And we’re confident that the human race will be safe in his hands with this brand new panel show packed with laughs, silliness and of course, fun.”
If one new show isn’t enough for you, Harry Hill can next be seen on Sky 1 with chat show/spoof cookery show, Harry Hill’s Tea Time. Here the comedian casts his comedy eye over the world of cooking and cookery TV programmes, along with some celebrity guests.
Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule is due on ITV in 2017.
Harry Hill’s Tea Time will air 16th October 2016 at 6pm on Sky 1.
