Belle & Sebastian are set to provide the music for a new TV show starring Matthew Perry.

In the show, the actor plays a character who finds fame after throwing his dog. The programme is called The Dog Thrower and will be a one-off episode aired as part of the Playhouse Presents... series on Sky Arts in May, reports Herald Scotland. Other stars set to appear in episodes during the series include Ben Wishaw, Billie Piper and model Cara Delevingne.

Matthew Perry is best known for playing Chandler Bing in the US comedy Friends while Belle & Sebastian are currently working on a new album inspired by the Eurovision contest.

Last month Belle & Sebastian took to the stage at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas to perform their track 'I Want The World To Stop'.

The band picked up the Outstanding Contribition award at the bash, which took place at London's Brixton Academy. They played the track from 2010 album 'Belle And Sebastian Write About Love' to an audience which included Godlike Genius winners Blondie, Paul McCartney, Damon Albarn, Jarvis Cocker, Lily Allen and more.

Picking up their award, Belle & Sebastian referenced David Bowie's message at the Brit Awards, in which Kate Moss said on his behalf, "Scotland, stay with us." Belle & Sebastian's Stevie Jackson said: "England stay with us – at least just for a night. And if we do leave you, I hope we'll always be friends."
