BBC Three has announced that Guz Khan's comedy series Man Like Mobeen has been commissioned for a second series and will be filming in Birmingham later this year.

Man Like Mobeen follows a 29-year-old man from Small Heath, apparently a 'no-go zone' for anyone who isn't Muslim and a hotbed for terrorist activity.

In reality Mobeen, like most other people in Birmingham, knows no terrorists, and spends his personal time parenting his best friends Eight and Nate and - most importantly - his little sister Aqsa.

He acts as the (hairy) mother, father and brother figure in the series.

The BBC says the series offers an "insight into working class life as an ethnic minority" and while maintaining Guz Khan’s unique voice.

Guz Khan says: "I always knew we could make something that would make working class people laugh and be proud of who we are. It just so happens that Cuthbert from Monmouth and a couple of UKIP supporters liked it as well. Who’d have thought hey?"

Man Like Mobeen is a Tiger Aspect production written and created by Guz Khan and Andy Milligan.

It was commissioned for BBC Three by Kate Daughton and Damian Kavanagh, Controller BBC Three.
