T4 presenter Rick Edwards and actor Peter Mitchell play caricatures of themselves in this new pilot created by Tom Basden.

When Rick Edwards, presenter of teen programming strand T4, makes an off-the-cuff remark on air, little does he know that it'll become a YouTube sensation. Unfortunately, his bosses don't see the funny side, and he's sent to undertake political correctness training.

Wheelchair-bound actor Peter Mitchell is brought in to help Rick refresh his image and prove that he doesn't dislike the disabled - but it's a job neither of them are that enthusiastic about.

Rick & Peter delivers a satirical take on the self-important and pumped up world of TV presenting.
