Today Sky One have released first looks pics from their upcoming comedy Brassic starring Joe Gilgun, Michelle Keegan and Damien Molony.
Co-created by writer Danny Brocklehurst and actor Joe Gilgun, the series is described as having a "distinct northern flavour" and is about a group of working-class friends finding unconventional ways to win at life in northern suburbia.
Joe Gilgun plays Vinnie, a Lancashire lad with bipolar disorder whilst Damien Molony takes on the role of his razor-sharp best mate Dylan. Together the pair are inseparable and utterly co-dependant. They’ve hardly spent a day apart since birth.
But Dylan’s girlfriend Erin, played by Michelle 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 airs Thursday 22nd August on Sky One and will be available on NOW TV.
