Despite recent comments from Kevin Lygo, ITV is giving scripted comedy on the main channel yet another shot. The broadcaster has ordered Kate And Kolo, a six episode studio sitcom starring Brenda Blethyn (Vera) and Jimmy Akingbola (In The Long Run). Kate And Kolo follows Kate (Brenda Blethyn), a working-class woman who runs an old-fashioned café in a neglected seaside town and who develops a strong, if sometimes volatile, friendship with Kolo (Jimmy Akingbola), an asylum-seeking African doctor.
