Channel 4 rejects jihad comedy
Erstwhile comedy genius Chris Morris has had his would-be suicide bombers sitcom rejected by Channel 4 on the grounds that it is unsuitable for prime-time audiences.
This is in spite of the fact that the product was “carefully researched to ensure it would not be offensive to Muslims”.
If Morris went to such lengths not to cause offence, the end product was unlikely to have been very funny. We will, however, get a chance to find out – as the project may go ahead under Film4.
