Jennifer Saunders and Matthew Broderick have joined "There's Something About Movies".

The 60-year-old actress is set to star on the Sky One celebrity panel show alongside the "Tower Heist" actor, Rupert Everett, Lily Collins, Rafe Spall and Jason Isaacs to test their film trivia and blockbuster knowledge on-screen.

The much-anticipated series will kick off with Jessica Brown Findlay, Jimmy Carr, Lolly Adefope and Roisin Conaty, who will join comedian Micky Flanagan, Michael Sheen and British funnyman host Alan Carr.

Alan said: "Super excited to be hosting "There's Something About Movies" - with the unique mix of famous comedy faces and actual movie stars on one panel show together it's going to be must see TV.

"Grab your popcorn as we test the stars on their cinema knowledge, get all the Hollywood gossip behind the scenes and with some acting master classes I see if I've got what it takes to make it in tinsel town (spoiler alert - I haven't). It's going to be so much fun."
