Channel 4 renews raft of comedies

British broadcaster Channel 4 has recommissioned a number of its hit comedies including Fresh Meat and Phone Shop.

The ad supported commercial network has renewed both series for third seasons.

Lime Pictures-produced Fresh Meat airs on the main Channel 4 network, while Phone Shop, which is produced by Talkback Thames, airs on digital channel E4. Both series will launch in the new year.

E4’s acting head of comedy Nerys Evans said: “We’re thrilled we’re going to be spending more time with Sutton’s finest sales team. The economy is clearly in safe hands with the PhoneShop crew’s dedication to shifting units while attempting to run the high street.
