Tom Hollander is set to star in new BBC Two sitcom 'Rev'

According to UK's Female First, Tom Hollander (Mr. Collins) is set to star in a new BBC Two sitcom about an East London vicar.
New series 'Rev' will follow the 'Gosford Park' actor take the lead and depict the daily frustrations faced by Reverend Adan Smallbone as he is relocated from a countryside parish to St Saviour's hectic city church.

The religious character has even more problems as his solicitor wife Alex struggles to adapt and support him in his new role.

But the pair will have to get used to their new lives quickly, as the church will be frequented from a number of colourful people, ranging from scheming MPs, alcoholic Colin and Mick the local crack addict.

As well as taking the lead, Tom also worked closely with writer James Wood in developing the amusing character.

The pair previously worked together on the highly-regarded BBC Two series 'Freezing'.

Tom will also be joined in the show by Olivia Colman, Steve Evets, Miles Jupp, Lucy Liemann, Simon McBurney and Ellen Thomas.

Special guests will also include Alexander Armstrong, Darren Boyd, Hugh Bonneville and Colin Salmon.

'Rev' will be directed by Peter Cattaneo and produced by Kenton Allen and Hannah Pescod.
