Channel 4 have today announced Joe Lycett's Got Your Back, a new six-part series which will follow Joe as he turns his well-honed skills of complaining to dish out a hilarious dose of consumer justice on behalf of the people of the UK.
Joe Lycett is known for his epic escalating battles with officials as he lodges complaints and talks his way out of almost anything, including his now infamous parking fine. For this brand new series he is turning his hand to helping out the great British public with all their genuine consumer complaints.
From scams and poor customer service to shocking practices and unacceptable consumer standards the series will cover a range of consumer gripes, feature stories relating to consumer issues and go undercover in Joe‘s quest for consumer justice. The approach may be humorous but the results could be life changing.
Speaking about the new series, Joe said “Having spent most of my life sending arsey emails to companies and local councils it is a great treat to now have an amazing crack team to escalate my consumer rights fight and needlessly waste corporate time. If you’ve been scammed, messed about by a company, or just want to contest a parking fine, then worry not: I’ve got your back.”
Executive Producer Sarah Lazenby said “Joe Lycett is a rare talent, who manages to publically lampoon everyone from parking wardens to Donald Trump with wit, warmth and utter charm. His infamous tirades against petty injustices are totally on point and we’re delighted that following a hugely successful pilot we are commissioning a series of his uniquely authored consumer show for Channel 4”
