Hapless follows Paul Green (Tim Downie), a journalist for the UK’s fourth most successful Jewish newspaper, as he tries to find rubbish stories to please his narrow-minded editor (voiced by creator and writer Gary Sinyor).
Obsessed with his own view of truth and fairness, Paul aspires to bigger things – but his enquiring nature causes chaos and offence in a society where offence is easily taken. With a sweary sister always on his case, played by Lucy Montgomery (Tracey Ullman’s Show, The Armstrong and Miller Show), a neurotic and desperately single best friend getting in the way, played by Josh Howie (Call Me Alvy), and a teasing father behaving like a big brother, played by Geoffrey McGivern (Little Dorrit, Ghosts, Plebs), a day of calamity is only ever just around the corner for everyman Paul, in this fresh new satirical comedy series.
