talks with British broadcaster Channel 4 regarding a £2million switch from ITV back to Channel 4, to create and star in a sketch show. The deal would also include Hill making a feature-length film for Film4 that would get a theatrical release upon completion.
A source close to the comedian said: “Harry has lots of ideas and fancies doing something different for a while, especially his own film. That doesn’t really fit in with ITV’s plans for him so he is interested in doing a deal with Channel 4.”
“They have offered him big budgets and a lot of creative freedom to make what he wants, and that’s what attracts him to the offer more than the pay cheque.”
“He has been earning millions with ITV for years so it is not all about the money. For Harry it’s all about doing projects he loves so it seems almost certain he’ll head to Channel 4. And all his fans would love to see a Harry Hill movie.”
