Early “This Time With Alan Partridge” Details

New details are out about Steve Coogan’s latest iteration of his classic comedy character Alan Partridge.

BBC One will launch “This Time With Alan Partridge” later this year. The six-part series will see Partridge handed a career lifeline – the chance to temporarily stand in as co-host on evening weekday show “This Time”.

It will mark Alan’s first return to live television since his 1990s chat show “Knowing Me, Knowing You” which was cancelled after a guest was fatally shot on air.

Coogan will be joined in the series by Susannah Fielding (“Black Mirror”) as his female co-presenter Jennie Gresham and Tim Key as returning character Simon Denton. Coogan, Neil Gibbons and Rob Gibbons co-wrote the new season which the latter will direct.
