A pilot episode of the programme - expected to be renamed for the full series broadcast - was filmed and made available via iPlayer last summer, as part of the channel's Feed My Funny initiative of comedy pilots.
It was the most shared programme on corporation's on-demand service during the month of July 2012, and received a TV broadcast in mid-August.
Written by Steve Stamp and Allan Mustafa, People Just Do Nothing goes behind the scenes of Kurupt FM, the second most popular pirate radio station in West London. It receives 'up to eight texts' per show and plays the finest in UK garage and drum 'n' bass.
Filmed in a mockumentary style, the comedy observes as co-founders MC Sniper and DJ Beats try to build the station's audience and impress the BBC documentary crew that is filming them.
Announcing a number of comedy commissions, BBC Three controller Zai Bennett said today: "New British comedy is king on BBC Three, so I'm delighted to be able to announce that another one of last year's Comedy Feed pilots is going to full series in the fantastic People Just Do Nothing."
Produced by Rough Cut Television, the series will be filmed and broadcast later this year.
