Jack Dee returns as failed stand-up and serial liar Rick Spleen - a man who can deal with any situation ... badly - in the highly anticipated DVD release of the third series of critically acclaimed comedy Lead Balloon. Out on 6th June 2011 and released by 2entertain, Lead Balloon Series 3 features all seven episodes in their entirety including an extended Christmas special.

Series 3 sees Rick's career reach such dizzy heights as hosting the National Tyre Fitters Awards, presenting a safety video for Scuba Diving Gear, and guesting on a late-night phone-in on Rumour FM, where he fails to inspire a single call from the listeners.

A near-death experience turns out to be the least of his problems. He manages to record the worst score of all time on a much-loved radio panel show, and when his real name is revealed on a TV show about family trees, any remaining pride is well and truly lost.

Not everything is a bed of roses on the domestic front either. Mel is forced to run her agency from home while the office is being done up; Magda moves in 'temporarily' while her boiler is being fixed; and the relationship between Rick's daughter Sam, and her slacker boyfriend Ben hits the rocks - but can either of them actually be bothered to save it?

The series culminates in a 40 minute Christmas Special, which sees Rick in a challenging new acting role - well, alright, it's the part of Mr Smee in a panto. For Rick Spleen, as always, it's onwards and downwards...

Lead Balloon is an Open Mike Production for BBC2 with Simon Wilson as Executive Producer for the BBC. Lead Balloon is written by Jack Dee and Pete Sinclair with Alex Hardcastle as producer & director and Addison Cresswell and Andrew Beint executive producers for Open Mike Productions.
