Details and provisional title confirmed for Coogan's next Partridge series on BBC One ...
Alan Partridge's forthcoming series is a Simon Schama-style historical documentary of Britain, Chortle can reveal.
Production has begun on the BBC One show, provisionally titled And Did Those Feet, With Alan Partridge, with filming set to begin in May.
Rob and Neil Gibbons will once again direct and share writing duties with star Steve Coogan.
Dave Lambert, who produced the Partridge documentaries, Scissored Isle and Welcome to the Places of My Life, is also on board, with the series being made by Coogan's production company Baby Cow.
However, Chortle understands that after appearing in the last two Partridge series, Tim Key will not be reprising his sidekick role as Simon Denton.
The Gibbons brothers have previously said they were planning a series with Partridge presenting a history of Britain in which he will 'probably bite off more than he can chew'.
