IFC Sets Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Year of the Rabbit' Starring Matt Berry

IFC has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original comedy series Year of the Rabbit starring Matt Berry.

The six-episode first season will debut on Wednesday, February 19 at 10:30/9:30c.

The comedy follows Detective Inspector Rabbit, a hardened booze-hound who's seen it all, and his hapless, new, by-the-books partner Strauss. While they're investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter of the chief of police joins them, becoming the country's first female officer. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, spirtualists, music hall stars and more.

In addition to Berry, the comedy stars Freddie Fox, Susan Wokoma, David Dawson, Ann Mitchell, Alistair Petrie, Matthew Holness, Craig Parkinson, Keely Hawes, Sally Phillips and Jill Halfpenny.

Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil created the comedy. They executive produce with Berry, Ben Farrell, Toby Stevens and director Ben Taylor. Hannah Mackay serves as a producer. Objective Fiction produces.
