A new series of one-off comedies has been ordered by female-oriented digital channel Sky Living.
Sky describe the series as "drawing on some of the sharpest writing talent in the UK" to "paint a fresh picture of romance and the pursuit of it in the 21st century."
Full casting and production details have yet to be announced, but the first series' line-up is as follows:
Lovely Day will be delivering Blackpool based Kitten Chic, written by BAFTA award-winning Daran Little (The Road To Coronation Street), who creates the large, confident but ever-single, 17 year old Kitten who is determined to snag the man of her dreams.
A Nice Arrangement comes from Red Productions, written by Sanjeev Kohli. Sat and Siobhan have been going out for a while now, but she knows that going out with a British Sikh has its own set of cultural issues, so she's utterly delighted when Sat finally asks her to move in.
Finally, Channel X are producing Officially Special, following World Record Official Jo Pepper as she presides over some of the most bizarre and banal record attempts whilst juggling her own increasingly complicated personal life.
Sky Living's head, Antonia Hurford-Jones, said of the comissions: "It's exciting times as Sky Living evolves over the coming months and the Love Matters comedies are a really important indication of where we are going. Written and starring some of the best of British talent, they will show our customers Living's appetite and ambition for brilliantly funny and confident original, scripted content on the channel."
Lucy Lumsden, Head of Comedy at Sky added: "This season of one-off films about love have allowed us to deliver a wide range of original comic voices and fresh tones to Sky Living. We are delighted with the results and think that they will strike a chord with our customers."
