Comedy - Frost/Eldon Collabo

From the 'ardian:
In The IT Crowd, Graham Linehan (Father Ted, Black Books) turns his idiosyncratic eye on office life in a new comedy produced by Ash Atalla (The Office). Chris O'Dowd (Festival) and Richard Ayoade (Nathan Barley) are Roy and Moss, IT support staff sequestered in the kind of dingy basement that could only ever make you deeply strange; Katherine Parkinson is Jen, their boss, who thought she was going for a job in the glamorous offices upstairs but was sorely mistaken. Meanwhile in Hyperdrive, writing partners Kevin Cecil and Andy Riley (Black Books, Smack the Pony) turn their gaze to the cosmos in a new science-fiction comedy in which Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) and the wonderfully strange Kevin Eldon (Nighty Night) play everyday guys on a mission to the stars: to promote British interests in a fast-moving galaxy.
