BBC Four has announced a new comedy show about metal detecting enthusiasts.
Andy, a wannabe archaeologist, spends time in muddy fields with a metal detector and a packed lunch alongside his friend Lance. Together they dream of finding that priceless Saxon hoard that will make them rich and cement their place in detecting history. But as they go off on their adventures, real life keeps getting in the way. They embark on a journey of greed, betrayal, rejection and redemption as they hurtle towards Danbury Metal Detecting Club’s greatest ever find. The comedy is due to air either at the end of this year or early next year
Starring: Mackenzie Crook as Andy & Toby Jones as Lance
