Here's an update kindly provided by Graeme Garden:
After Slapstick I'm flying out to Australia. We just recorded 2 TV shows based on The Unbelievable Truth, and are now hoping we get the go ahead to make the rest of the series in February.
We have a charity Clue show at the New Theatre Oxford on March 5th, and then we'll be recording the next series in May - June.
As you may know, "The Unbelievable Truth" was developed by Graeme Garden & Jon Naismith as a series for BBC Radio 4. Here's an article about the filming of the Australian pilot of the series (thanks again to Graeme, who provided this link on Twitter: http://www.mediaspy.org/report/2012/01/14/the-chaser-boys-film-pilot-for-seven/):

The Chaser boys film pilot for Seven
The Chaserís Craig Reucassel is poised to host a new panel-comedy series on Seven, following the filming of a pilot on Thursday.
Titled The Unbelievable Truth, the series will be based on the BBC radio programme of the same name, The Daily Telegraph reports.
The panel programme sees four comedians each giving a lecture on a particular subject, with the majority of the lecture consisting of lies. Each contestant must include five peculiar facts, hoping that the fellow panellists cannot pick the unbelievable truths from the lies.
Joining Reucassel as guests will be fellow Chaserís Andrew Hansen and Julian Morrow.
News of the series being developed for Seven first surfaced in May last year.
If the pilot is picked up to series, it will likely screen on Seven later this year.
