The show is the first original commission announced by BritBox UK, the streaming service launched by the BBC and ITV.
Spitting Image co-creator Roger Law is back on board for the show, which was watched by 15 million viewers in its heyday.
The show famously featured Margaret Thatcher in a man's suit treating her cabinet – 'the vegetables' – with contempt, John Major as a grey puppet and the Queen Mother slugging from a gin bottle.
