It was announced last week that Russell Howard has been recording a pilot episode of a chat show that he is currently developing for Sky One. The current title for it at the moment is The Russell Howard Hour and will be a mix of both interviews and stand up segments.

In December it has been revealed that he recorded a non-broadcast episode of the show with test guest Neil Morrissey who played his father in the BBC Christmas episode, A Gert Lush Christmas.

Last year, Sky Announced a two year deal with Russell for a fourteen part series that was originally described as an Entertainment show.  There is no news when the show will be aired but it is rumoured to be later this year.
