GCHQ sitcom starring David Schwimmer to air next year

A new sitcom about Cheltenham’s GCHQ which stars David Schwimmer, will air on Sky One in 2020.

David Schwimmer will play the leading role in a brand new Sky One sitcom, about life at GCHQ which will air on Tuesday 18 February 2020. Filming for the show wrapped in July 2019 and despite being set in Cheltenham, was actually filmed in Reading.

The six-episode workplace comedy is set within Cheltenham’s Government Communications Headquarters, where an NSA agent joins an inept computer analyst, played by actor and the series’ writer Nick Mohammed.

Jon Mountague, Sky Entertainment’s head of comedy said: ‘Nick Mohammed has written a brilliantly funny comedy series in Intelligence. David and Nick are hilarious together and so perfectly represent the special relationship between our two great nations. I can’t wait.’

Sharing a clip of the sitcom on his Twitter account, David Schwimmer celebrated GCHQ’s recent 100th anniversary.


Speaking about the show, the Friends star said: ‘I have no idea what this show is about but if it’s called Intelligence, naturally I’m going to be part of it.’
