'Monty Python' Comeback Series

Jul 22, 2005 | 10:14am EDT

Legendary British comedy group Monty Python are making a new six-part series using new material and some best loved old clips.

John Cleese, Erick Idle, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones will film the new clips at various locations including Teddington Lock in London and the Hollywood Bowl in Californina.

The five surviving Pythons will write and present one special episode each and team up to write a sixth super-episode in honor of the late Graham Chapman.

A spokesman says, "They have all chosen their favorite bits from old Python films and the television series and linked them together in their own crazy way."

Monty Python was a huge hit in Britain and America in the 1970s, producing films like The Life Of Brian and The Holy Grail. More recently Eric Idle's Broadway musical Spamalot, based on Python comedy, picked up three Tony Awards last month.
