Co-created by Monica Heisey, Smothered is a tale of two worlds colliding, where romance blossoms but the pressures of modern dating linger.
Will they? Won’t they? Should they? Shouldn’t they? Described as a not so typical rom-com, Smothered stars Danielle Vitalis as Sammy, a fiercely independent young woman who is done with dating apps, sick of immature men, and here for a good time.
Jon Pointing plays Tom, who has never been inclined to swipe left or right. He's a settled man with a warm heart but carries his fair share of baggage.
On a night out, the two strangers meet, and end up singing out their drunken souls in a karaoke booth. Then the inevitable happens. (They hook up).
What seems like a great idea at the time, the strangers agree to have a no strings attached affair for three weeks, but on the condition that they never speak again. Sounds simple, right? However, what was supposed to be a few weeks of great sex, pasta in bed and first names only, the sparks flying around them cannot be ignored.
But Sammy soon makes a shocking discovery that there is another woman in Tom’s life... his six-year-old daughter Ellie.
Smothered will also star Aisling Bea, Rebecca Lucy Taylor, also known as Self Esteem, Blair Underwood, Jordan Stephens and Lisa Hammond.
Smothered will air later this year on Sky Comedy
