Sky One Orders ‘Safe Space’, New Comedy-Drama Starring Greg Davies
Sky One has commissioned ‘Safe Space‘, a new comedy-drama series starring man-mountain comedian Greg Davies (‘Man Down’, ‘Cuckoo’, ‘Taskmaster’) as a psychotherapist in a small market town dispenses advice to his clients to suit his own desperate need to control them.
The series sees BAFTA-winning comedian Greg Davies as Michael Leer, a psychotherapist in a small market town in England. A likeable eccentric and one of life’s listeners, on the surface Michael is a safe pair of hands. But unbeknownst to them, Michael’s clients are sharing their innermost secrets and fears with a fantasist who will no longer sit in the shadows. The advice Michael Leer dispenses is that which suits his own desperate need to control them. For Michael’s clients their “safe space” is no longer safe at all.
‘Safe Space’ is written and created by Greg Davies and Stephen Morrison (‘Man Down’), and is Produced by Avalon (‘Taskmaster’, ‘Breeders’, ‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver’, ‘The Russell Howard Hour’, ‘Spitting Image’), Executive Producers are Greg Davies, James Taylor, Jon Thoday, Richard Allen-Turner and Toby Welch.
