Sky 1 HD presents Liza & Huey’s Pet Nation, a brand new, prime-time entertainment series hosted by Liza Tarbuck and Fun Lovin’ Criminals’ frontman Huey Morgan.

The ten part series is an animal celebration that combines must-see home videos with sharp, funny and jaw droppingly extreme studio based and on location features, plus fantastic guests including Kathy Burke, Bill Bailey, Neil Morrissey, Sue Perkins and Ben De Lisi. Liza & Huey’s Pet Nation is exclusive to Sky1 from Friday 26th March at 8pm.

Liza and Huey share a keen wit and unique and genuine passion for people and animals. They explore the wonderful world of animals from heartfelt stories to amazing recoveries, talented animals to unruly pets, celebrity animal lovers and extreme owners.

Liza Tarbuck commented: “It’s a show you can sit down to watch with the whole family. We’re a nation of animal-lovers and watching pets on a Friday night is something you can wind down to. I’m sure there will be a lot of laughs but we’ll learn a lot about animals too.”

Huey Morgan added: “Pet Nation is the sort of show I love – loads of animals creating total mayhem. Working with Liza again has been a blast and I get to bring my dog Sugar to work every day – sounds kinda perfect to me.”

Liza & Huey’s Pet Nation will include regular features covering alternative pet therapies, the latest animal gadgets, doggie fashion, weird and wonderful animal stories from around the world, doggie dating, crazy animal home videos, high-end cooking for cats and dogs, plus a whole host of not only domestic but wild and exotic animals in the studio – let the chaos begin! The Pet Nation vet Dr Scott Miller will also feature in several shows.
