The series - which promises "a host of cameos from the world of music" - is co-written written by Day and Rhys Thomas (Nathan Barley).

The channel has also picked up a new drama acquisition from Ireland - Amber is a psychological thriller following the disappearance of a 14-year-old girl.

Eva Birthistle (Waking The Dead) leads the cast of the four-parter, which examines the twists and turns of the teenager's disappearance from several different perspectives.

BBC Two has also announced a raft of new commissions in drama and factual, including wartime drama 37 Days with Ian McDiarmid (Star Wars) and racing documentary Idris Elba: King of Speed.
