The four comics, who perform live together as The Idiot Bastard Band, will record the sitcom, In Transit, next month, loosely based on their real-life band and themselves.
The sitcom will portray the outfit as a struggling musical group, however in reality The Idiot Bastard Band has enjoyed a string of sell-out gigs.
The description for In Transit explains: "This band is a band in trouble. It has a name that cannot be said on radio and is on its uppers. The band struggles from small, under-attended gig to small, frequently cancelled gig."
In the pilot the band are constantly on the road, and the comedy will be given a surreal twist. Radio 4 says the bus in the show "is more like a TARDIS - a surreal bus with bedrooms upstairs, a lab at the back and, naturally, a wine cellar. The band lives in the bus all the time."
The comedy is being overseen by Giddy Goat Productions. Show producer Steve Doherty tells BCG: "I'm really excited about this project. I've worked with Phill before on radio & TV programmes, but it's my first time working with Ade, Neil & Rowland. Between us we have nearly 700 years experience in entertainment. It should be a great night and a very funny show for Radio 4."
Adrian Edmondson, who also fronts the band The Bad Shepherds, recently said, according to a newspaper article, that he is not interested in most modern comedy. He commented: "Now comedians start as the establishment. I think you can even take a degree in comedy somewhere. It's great that so many people want to do it but I don't find much of it very interesting."
