"Female skewing but not alienating men" that's how Director of Sky Living HD Antonia Hurford-Jones described her channel at the press screening for new comedy The Spa.
She also explained how excited she is to have this show on her channel. I've had the pleasure of watching the whole series and in no way did I feel alienated as a male viewer, so fellas, don't be afraid to watch a show on Sky Living HD.The show comes from the team behind hit ITV sitcom Benidorm (Tiger Aspect) and uses the same producer, same writer and even a few appearances from some of the Benidorm cast themselves.
However, The Spa is different but just as funny, if not more openly so. The Spa exposes the different chinks in the Spa's armour often involving new initiatives which involve one or two of the Spa's staff and customers. So what do these characters do and look like then?
Well. Fronted by the brilliant Rebecca Front (no pun intended) The Spa is a bright, colourful feel-good sitcom that draws you in and makes you fall in love with the characters. And what a cast to play those characters including; Tim Healy, Frances Barber, Niky Wardley, Debbie Chazen, Nadine Marshall, Chris Geere, Derren Litten, and Cheryl Fergison, so I guess the characters were never really in any doubt of being loved and appreciated.
