Steve Coogan’s Alan Partridge May Be Returning to TV


Steve Coogan’s production company is recutting a series of web shorts featuring character Alan Partridge into a real-deal TV show.

The shorts, which were originally made for Fosters Beer, are 11 minutes long, making it relatively easy for them to stick two of them together to reach broadcast length. The 12-part series starts airing online on November 5th, with each episode “shot as if it’s been filmed through a webcam in Partridge’s Radio Norwich studio.” So they’ll presumably be able to turn the show into a standard 6-episode British series. Just how much it all has to do with Fosters is unclear.
