Johnny Vegas In UFO Sitcom
Another sci-fi pilot for the BBC

Johnny Vegas has shot a BBC Three sitcom pilot about UFOs, just
months after blasting the channel for axing Ideal.

Filming on A Saucer Full of Secrets in Vegas’s native St Helens
wrapped on Wednesday.

According to the local newspaper, the St Helens Reporter, the
comedian shot scenes with a cow at Siding Lane Country Park,
‘before realising an alien spacecraft [was] approaching over the
treetops. The scene involved a huge mobile platform that
projected the alien “landing lights” down onto the park’s
grassed area.’

The pilot was a co-production between the BBC in Manchester and
Steve Coogan's production company Baby Cow, who made Ideal, The
Mighty Boosh and Gavin and Stacey. It was written and directed
by the Ideal team of Graham Duff and Ben Wheatley.

Sheila Hancock, Roy Hudd and Daisy Haggard co-star in the pilot,
which is named after Pink Floyd's second studio album.

The news comes as the BBC also announced V Sign, another sci-fi
comedy pilot about an alien invasion, this one shot in
Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland.
