Sue Perkins and Richard Osman Head New BBC Two Panel Show

My platonic valentine Sue Perkins and real-life Trivia Groot Richard Osman are heading up a new six-episode comedy panel show for BBC Two. “Insert Name Here,” which is the show’s title (so Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled can go ahead and kick a tire in anger or something), will have two teams fronted by Osman and comedian/hobbit Josh Widdicombe to discuss people throughout history who can lay claim to the greatest person who has a given name. A pilot was taped earlier this year.
