A one hour comedy special in which Peter Kay plays a self-made millionaire.
The show is a spoof version of the reality TV format Secret Millionaire, in which a rich person goes undercover to work out how to distribute his wealth to those less fortunate.
Malachy Mooney has made his money through his coach empire The Mooneys, with its tagline 'Taking You Away From Everything You Know'.
In this programme, for one week, Malachy trades his luxury lifestyle - the large house, the manicured gardens, and the lion statues - to go live undercover in a destitute former mining town in Northern England, hoping to change lives and make dreams come true with deserving folk for his monies.
Channel 4's Nerys Evans told: "It's fantastic to have Peter starring in this beautifully written comedy from Baby Cow. We can't wait to have him back on our screens in this laugh out loud narrative comedy."
This project was cancelled. Nothing was ever broadcast or released.
