Foxtel today announced it would continue to produce television programming in Melbourne and will move its popular The Comedy Channel to new Melbourne headquarters.

In a Monty Python mood, Foxtel has appointed Sean Riley as General Manager, Foxtel Channels, Melbourne. Riley will also be Channel Manager of the relocated The Comedy Channel. Riley was formerly Channel Manager for The Fox Footy Channel, so we are looking forward to the re-casting of Dermot Brereton as John Cleese.
