BBC2 has ordered a new Harry Hill series, Harry Hill’s World of TV, from NIT TV.

Each episode, Harry Hill will be taking the lid off a different genre of TV.

The 6×30 show is billed as “not just a hilarious lesson in TV history but also a demonstration of what is required to make each of the main TV genres.”

Hill will focus in on soaps, medical dramas, police dramas , home improvement shows, historical documentaries and cookery programmes.

Harry Hill says: “It’s about time someone blew the whistle on how these TV shows are put together and it looks like I’m the man for the job. Watching TV will never be the same again! I predict this series of programmes will be required viewing for all students of TV. We’re talking TV landmark…jus’ sayin’.”

Mobashir Dar, Executive Producer says: “If you like Harry Hill, the world and TV then you’ll love Harry Hill’s World of TV”

Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC says: “Harry is the undisputed master of unearthing unintentionally funny moments and there will be plenty of them in this laugh out loud new series.”

Harry Hill’s World of TV is coming to BBC Two later in 2020.

Harry Hill’s World of TV is made by Nit TV, the joint venture between Harry Hill and CPL Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company, and was commissioned by Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC and Patrick Holland, Controller BBC Two. Executive Producers for NIT TV are Harry Hill, Mobashir Dar, Murray Boland and Danielle Lux and the  Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Syeda Irtizaali.
