John Rushton's Much Anticipated Chickens – Tonight, 10:30pm, C4

By September 2, 2011

The highly anticipated new comedy pilot from The Inbetweeners Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and writer Jonny Sweet airs tonight at 10:30pm on Channel 4.

Our Client, John Rushton, was Producer on the Big Talk Production, which is about three youngsters who avoid combat in the First World War:

George (played by Thomas) is a conscientious objector, Cecil (Bird) would love to be fighting for queen and country but his flat feet mean the army won't have him – and then there's Bert (Sweet), a philandering scaredicat on the run.

The comedy is based around how the three can win over the women of the village.
