Channel 4 is going back to its roots in 1998 by re-uniting its comedy stars of the Eighties in a new Comic Strip Presents while celebrating the Eighties generation of comedians in a new series.

Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmondson, Nigel Planer and Peter Richardson have been brought together by the channel in The Comic Strip Presents...Four men in a Car.

The script for the film is still in development with writers Peter Richardson and Pete Richens, but the outline plot involves four salesmen in a car are travelling to a sales conference in a car and come across some adventures.
