Kasabian’s Tom Meighan to star in sitcom with Marco Pierre White

Singer set for British wrestling comedy

Kasabian‘s Tom Meighan has signed up to act in a new British sitcom about wrestling.

Walk Like A Panther will also star This Is England actor Stephen Graham, with TV chef Marco Pierre White set for a cameo appearance.

Meighan will play a doorman in the ’70s-set comedy, which has been independently funded and not signed up by a TV station yet, reports The Sun.

The newspaper reports an anonymous source as saying: “The cast has been assembled thanks to that nostalgia and the love of gritty northern humour.”

Last year the singer’s Kasabian bandmate Serge Pizzorno said he was writing music to accompany the show.
