Two Jo Brand comedies in one year?! 2016 really is spoiling us, although her latest comedy Damned has been a long time coming.
Originally conceived at the BBC, Damned made its way onto Sky Arts back in June 2014 for a pilot as part of their Playhouse Presents series and almost two years on it was announced that Channel 4 had agreed to pick up the series, this time offering it a six-part run.
In the pilot, Jo Brand and Alan Davies played two stressed social workers struggling to keep control of their private lives whilst working in a chaotic office and were joined by Kevin Eldon and Georgie Glen.
Brand, Davies, Eldon and Glen all return for the series with Jo Brand and Alan Davies reprising their roles as Rose Denby and Alastair Kavanagh. She’s often late for work and he has a very demanding fiancé back at home.
