British singer James Blunt is reportedly set to show off his acting skills in a new U.K. sitcom.

The You're Beautiful hitmaker and comedian Jack Whitehall have been linked to reality Tv star Hugo Taylor's comedy script about life in the music industry.

A source tells Britain's The Sun, "It's an unashamed posh boy sitcom. It's set in the music biz and involves all the madcap goings on and decadent behaviour. It's fresh and exciting and has Hugo, Jack Whitehall and James Blunt attached.

"Apparently James has great comic timing. Obviously he doesn't need the money."

Blunt is the latest Brit singer set for a U.K. sitcom - Gary Barlow recently filmed a cameo for comedienne Miranda Hart's show Miranda.
