In an interview with the BBC Suttie said she has ‘always wanted to write a musical sitcom or a sitcom that had music in it but producers are often a bit like, ‘no, it’s too much of a risk’.
‘So, for many years, I’ve been trying to work out a way of making it more approachable for commissioners. I understand it’s a risk. I think Flight of the Conchords has helped.
‘At the moment, I’m writing a TV pilot called Burger Days. It’s really early stages but it’s about me and a friend who work in a burger bar in a service station and it’s about their lives.’
She added: ‘And I’m trying to develop a film, me and [fellow comedian] Tom Basden. I’d quite like to be in a British film so if anybody’s reading this like, for example, Shane Meadows, just give me a line.’
Suttie is currently on tour with her latest Edinburgh show Love Lost in the British Retail Industry – a one-woman musical show about Lisa, a Somerfield check-out girl who falls in love with a shelf-stacker named Karl.
