people just do nothing

The BBC has premiered mockumentary series 'People Just Do Nothing' in full on its iPlayer service.

That makes the four-part series the first iPlayer-originated comedy to be shown in full online before being broadcast on TV.

It premiered yesterday, but won't be shown on BBC Three until September.

The show debuted online as a pilot episode for BBC Three's Comedy Feeds. It was the most-shared iPlayer programme during July 2012.

The show follows pirate radio station Kurupt FM, and all their goings on.

The people behind it – Steve Stamp, Allan Mustafa, Hugo Chegwin and Asim Chaudhry – previously made five-minute webisodes that they uploaded to YouTube.

Producer Ash Attala said in a statement: "A brand new series launched in a brand new way. 'People Just Do Nothing' is the first UK-made comedy series to play out in full on BBC iPlayer ahead of its transmission on BBC Three.

"The premiere will allow people to binge watch what is one of my favourite ever shows."

iPlayer is becoming the home of the BBC's online comedy, with new shows coming from Micky Flanagan, Frankie Boyle, Matt Berry and Stewart Lee, among others.

If the BBC Trust approves the plan, BBC Three is set to become an online-only channel from autumn 2015.
