Frankie Boyle's Rehabilitation Programme is a topical, argument-fuelled studio pilot in which Frankie is confronted by celebrities and members of the public who attempt to change his uncompromising world view in a series of funny, informed debates.
People going up against Frankie might be excited about the upcoming Stone Roses reunion, passionate about caravanning, or massive Twilight fans - "Frankie isn't, and he'll happily tell them why they're all really, really wrong."
Producers, with tongue firmly in cheek, says: "It's very much like Parkinson or Wogan, but with paedo jokes."
Channel 4's Shane Allen told The Guardian: "Frankie is just a bit pissed off that he's portrayed as this one-setting shock machine. He's a very politically aware, bright bloke who wants to show his intellectual muscle a bit more."
In January 2012 it was revealed that Channel 4 would not be going forward with the project. News story
This project was cancelled. Nothing was ever broadcast or released.
