Sky One Releases First Look Images, Trailer & August UK Premiere Date For Comedy ‘Brassic’
Sky One has released some first look images along with a new trailer and August UK air date for new comedy series ‘Brassic‘ starring Joe Gilgun, Michelle Keegan and Damien Molony.
Joe Gilgun (‘This is England, ‘Preacher’), Michelle Keegan (‘Our Girl’) and Damien Molony (‘Ripper Street’) star in ‘Brassic’, an edgy new original comedy from Sky co-created by Gilgun and BAFTA-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst (‘Safe’). With a distinct northern flavour, Brassic is about a group of working-class friends finding unconventional ways to win at life in northern suburbia.
Vinnie (Gilgun), a Lancashire lad with bipolar disorder, and Dylan (Molony), his razor-smart best mate, are inseparable and utterly co-dependant. They’ve hardly spent a day apart since birth. But Dylan’s girlfriend Erin (Keegan) might just shake things up for good with her plans to leave town and start a new life for herself and her kid, Tyler.
Dylan is faced with the impossible decision between a fresh start with the love of his life or staying behind with his inseparable gang of mates that he can’t live without. This gang includes: Cardi (Tom Hanson), champion kebab eater and total liability; Ash (Aaron Heffernan), the son of a family of fighting Travellers whose fists can get them out of most kinds of trouble; Tommo (Ryan Sampson), the most sexually liberated man in Britain who doesn’t care what people think; and JJ (Parth Thakerar), a sharp entrepreneur who runs a garage (with a lucrative sideline in stolen cars).
These lads have dealt, scammed, bribed and conned their way through adolescence, but now, on the brink of adulthood, their dealing and stealing is catching up with them and a whole load of trouble is heading their way. Like a carefully stacked tower of cards, what happens if one of them is knocked down or, worse, removed from the pack entirely?
‘Brassic‘ premieres on Sky One from Thursday, 22nd August 2019, with all episodes available via Sky On Demand & NOW TV.
