Peep Show is a British sitcom starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb. The television programme is written by Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, with additional material by Mitchell and Webb, amongst others. It has been broadcast on Channel 4 since 2003. The show's eighth series (broadcast in late 2012) makes it the longest-returning comedy in Channel 4 history (though in episode terms it ranks third). Stylistically, the show uses point of view shots with the thoughts of main characters Mark and Jeremy audible as voice-overs.
