With a mockumentary-feel, Scotland In A Day is a crowdsourced-style comedy featuring John Hannah, Brian Cox, Doon Mackichan, Kayvan Novak and many more.

The mockumentary is set on the day of the 2014 Scottish Independence referendum, and designed to capture a snap shot of a nation on the brink of both triumph and disaster.

Producer Rab Christie explains: "Many of the characters and sketches are themed around the referendum, others are simply going about their business one day in September... hopefully it'll be a very funny show, and a celebration of Scottish talent."

Rachel Springett, commissioner for Channel 4, explains: "This is a brilliantly unique idea that will bring levity and humour to what is essentially a cardinal, seminal moment in Scottish history. We're very excited to with with The Comedy Unit and an incredible cast to bring this timely mockumentary to Channel 4."
