Stand-up comedian Robin Morgan is making two shows for BBC Radio Wales. A sitcom pilot called Relocation, and a version of his 2016 stand-up show.

Relocation is about a London couple; John and his pregnant wife Sarah, who are put into witness relocation in the Welsh Valleys, only to be moved next door to Ioan. Their neighbour turns out to be an excitable man who might blow their cover, as he once spent a year at John's school twenty years ago.

Morgan is set to write and star in the sitcom, which will be produced by Zipline Creative, the company behind The Unexplainers and Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience.

BBC Radio Wales has also ordered Robin Morgan: Proposes, a one-off half-hour version of Morgan's 2016 Edinburgh Fringe show. Based on the true story of his marriage proposal that didn't go to plan, the show received a number of good reviews, including a four star review from The Times.

The stand-up show, which is being produced in-house by the BBC, will be recorded in front of a live audience in Wales later this year.

Morgan, who is Welsh, has been working on the comedy club circuit for a number of years. He is also established as a topical comedy gag writer, with Have I Got News For You, Newzoids and The News Quiz amongst the writing credits on his CV. In September he was named this year's BBC Radio Comedy Bursary Writer.

Speaking about the two new commissions, Morgan jokes: "I'm delighted Radio Wales have given me not one, but two opportunities to prove once and for all why the license fee should be scrapped."

Both Relocation and Robin Morgan: Proposes will be broadcast on [z]BBC Radio Wales] later this year.
