BBC Three is to show Sticky, an animated comedy starring Tom Hardy, Javone Prince, Kayvan Novak and Charlotte Riley.

The comedy follows four best friends who attend a college located in London's mythical borough of Shatford. The BBC explains: "This deceptively boring scenario serves as a launchpad for epic adventure, heart-rending friendship, and increasingly sticky situations.

"All forms of life depend on having a Wi-Fi connection, so when the internet suddenly disappears the world is thrown into chaos. Can the friends cope offline? Who would kidnap the web and why? How long do we really expect the planet survive without Internet Porn? Questions only the gang can solve as they embark on a thrilling rescue mission to infiltrate the headquarters of the mysterious perpetrators of this heinous web-based crime."

Sticky has been created, directed and produced by Ed Tracy, who previously worked on Fonejacker and Facejacker. The script has been created by a team of writers lead by Steve Burge. The show will also feature Tony Way, Tom Davis and Arthur Darvill.

The producers explain: "Although based in reality, the freedom that animation brings allows Sticky to present an unlimited range of diverse characters and epic locations. Be prepared for the weird to collide with the epic. Plus Putin and Trump make guest appearances."

Sticky will be one of the shows that makes up BBC Three's Comedy Slices pilot list, the new name for BBC Comedy Feeds. The BBC has announced a total of 12 pilots across various channels. Full list

The Comedy Slices are expected to be published online in October.
