*daydreams about this is a very bad way*

Sounds really exciting. I look forward to it. Reece does very well in things he stars in generally.

from the Sunday Express:

No stranger to the twisted and surreal, the League of Gentlemen's Reece Shearsmith's latest venture could top them all. "I am in a new series called Modern Men. It's a sitcom about a group of men in the 1980's," said the actor, who is currently starring as Leo Bloom in The Producers . "I had to grow mutton chops and I looked like a fool for the whole period we were filming, I couldnt wait to shave them off." Could it be a Victorian Men Behaving Badly with beards?

Im so glad to hear about it, i have been waiting ages for more info and im so glad to finally have more news! :D it sounds fantastic!

It's a sitcom about a group of men in the 1980's...
Surely they mean the 1890s? Unless the Victorian period lasted far longer than I had realized. ;)

So does this mention mean it might actually air soon?

Does anyone know if a whole series was filmed or just a pilot?
