Pilot from Frankie Boyle, following on from the critically panned and highly controversial sketch show Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights.

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."

The pilot of Frankie Boyle's Rehabilitation Programme was recorded 1st December with guests Jack Whitehall and Reginald D Hunter. Produced by Endemol.

In January 2012 it was revealed that Channel 4 would not be going forward with the project. News story
