Channel 4 Renews ‘Stath Lets Flats’ For A 2nd Season
Britain’s worst letting agent will return, as Channel 4 renews ‘Stath Lets Flats‘ for a 2nd Season.
Stath will once again be unleashed on the London property market, as writer-performer Jamie Demetriou’s (‘Fleabag’, ‘Paddington 2’) returns as the hopeless Greek-Cypriot lettings agent, who will face his biggest challenge yet at the family business Michael & Eagle Lettings.
Having been denied the manager’s position by his own father, Vasos (Christos Stergioglou), Stath, along with Carole (Katy Wix) and the rest of the team, is forced to work under his arch-rival Julian (Dustin Demri-Burns) – and re-think his life goals. His sister Sophie (Natasia Demetriou) is also searching for a new direction after failing at Dance College and publicly denying her feelings for Al (Alistair Roberts).
“We did originally say no to this, but he just kept turning up, trying to get into the building,” commented Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4. “Sometimes it’s just easier to give in isn’t it? In all seriousness, we’re thrilled to back Jamie and this gem of a show again.”
The comedy landed in June last year to a wide array of positive review from critics. It has also been nominated for Best Comedy Programme at the 2019 Broadcast Awards.
“Lovely to have been given a series 2, mate,” adds Jamie Demetriou. “Thank you Channel 4 for the ongoing support and faith, and thank you everyone who worked on it. I would formally like to announce that series 2 MIGHT be about Stath and Peter Andre trying to make it in Miami.”
Stath Lets Flats was commissioned by Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4 and will be overseen by and Jack Bayles and Jon Petrie as Commissioning Editors at Channel 4. Roughcut TV is the production company. The series will be executive produced by Ash Atalla and Jamie Demetriou and produced by Seb Barwell. Series 2 will be written by Jamie Demetriou and the Script Editor will be Robert Popper (‘Friday Night Dinner’).
The show was originally developed from Channel 4’s Blaps, the online comedy showcase that uncovers the brightest new comedy stars and freshest TV ideas. Blaps has also spawned the upcoming gamer comedy series ‘Dead Pixels‘, which is due to premiere in the next few months.
