Keith Barret returns in series of thirty minute episodes.
Steve Coogan and Henry Normal's production company Baby Cow is to make a sequel series to the critically acclaimed Marion & Geoff.

Actor Rob Brydon will return as the lead in Keith Barret Under Observation, which will see Keith once again ranting and waxing lyrical, but this time from a hospital bed rather than a taxi cab.

Coogan will play Barret's consultant in the series of thirty minute episodes. The number of episodes is yet to be decided.

The series was commisioned by BBC controller Jane Root through the now defunct ICG, and will be executive produced by John Mc Hugh.
