Aaagh! It's The Mr Hell Show is a 13 x 30-minute collaboration between the BBC and Canadian outfits Sextant Entertainment and Peafur Productions. The lead character is described as a 'cynical and sardonic anti-hero' who appears in a number of short sharp sketches. The series, produced by Gareth Edwards and executive produced by Jon Plowman, will go out on BBC 2 in a post-watershed slot this autumn.
