Deadline reports that details are being kept under wraps, but reporter Peter White adds: “I’m told the narrative comedy has a similar tone to Charlie Brooker‘s A Touch of Cloth, the spoof cop comedy that ran on Sky One in 2012.”
In internet programme terms, ‘code 404’ refers to something that cannot be found. It has also become an urban slang term for a “brainless” person.
Mays has previously starred as an armed police officer in Line Of Duty. His comedy related roles include the sitcom Plus One, playing Walker in the 2016 Dad’s Army film and the recent film Swimming With Men.
He has a number of other comedy projects in development, including a starring role in the next series of Porters, playing Arthur Young in the forthcoming BBC/Amazon series Good Omens and a role in Sky One‘s new comedy thriller Temple.
Further details about Code 404 are expected to be revealed should Sky order a series.
