Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle is heading back to the small screen for the first time in 12 years to work on a new comedy series.

The Slumdog Millionaire moviemaker will team up with the creatives behind British film Four Lions for a police-based show entitled Babylon.

Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, who have also penned hit comedies Peep Show and The Thick of It, will write the pilot which will be directed by Boyle.

Channel 4 boss Jay Hunt revealed the project at the Edinburgh International Television Festival in Scotland.

Boyle last worked on Tv in 2001, overseeing the production of two movies, Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise and Strumpet, starring Timothy Spall and Christopher Eccleston respectively. He was also at the helm of the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony, which was broadcast around the world last July (12).
