Michael Palin returns to TV
London: Michael Palin is all set to make his first television acting appearance in over two decades with a World War I drama- 'The Wiper Times'.
The drama is based on the true story of a satirical newspaper produced by soldiers in the trenches, reported BBC online.
The project appears in good hands, with 'Private Eye' editor and 'Have I Got News For You' director Ian Hislop teaming up with his 'My Dad's The Prime Minister' writing partner Nick Newman on the script.
This is Palin's first television role since Alan Bleasdale's 'GBH' in 1991, in which he played a school headmaster intimidated by a newly-elected city council leader, played by Robert Lindsay.
'The Wiper Times' also stars Ben Chaplin as Captain Fred Roberts, who discovers a printing press in the ruined Belgian town of Ypres in 1916, using it to publish his satirical newspaper.
