After a period of seven years Matt Berry returns as the eccentric actor Steven Toast for the Toast in Tinseltown series.

Toast of London ran for three series with the last one airing in 2015, which followed Toast dealing with his problems on and off stage.

Now the comedy series will have a change of destination, moving from London to Hollywood as Toast gets the opportunity to audition for a movie in the United States.

Berry writes the series with Arthur Matthews, and unlike the previous series which were broadcast on Channel 4, Toast in Tinseltown will be on BBC Two.
