ITV2 announce new sitcom Buffering, starring Iain Stirling

This brand-new comedy has been written and created by Iain Stirling and Steve Bugeja.

The new six-part series, follows twenty-something Stirling's character Iain, a children’s TV presenter in a complicated relationship with TV producer Olivia, played by Elena Saurel.

Iain's housemates, Rosie, Greg, Ashley and Talia - are played by Jessie Cave, Paul G Raymond, Rosa Robson and Janine Harouni - alongside Ashley’s old flame Robbie, played by Sean Sagar. Together they face the daily challenges of millennial living.

As a generation who have been brought up to believe you must live the perfect life, these friends will discover it’s ok to fail, over and over again.

Speaking about the new series, Iain Stirling said "This show has been a passion project for me and Steve for years now so it’s a dream come true to see it get made. I cannot thank ITV2 enough for the faith they have shown in me over the years. Pinch yourself stuff!"

ITV's Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, Paul Mortimer said "We're excited to land this new scripted comedy by Iain and Steve for ITV2. Comedy continues to be an important part of the channel's output and we hope this fresh take on a twenty-somethings flat-share will sit perfectly alongside our other programmes on the channel and ITV Hub."

Executive Producer for Avalon, Richard Allen-Turner said "We’re delighted with ITV2’s commitment and support shown for this fresh new comedy showcasing Iain and Steve’s brilliantly funny and razor-sharp millennial voices and our superb cast."

The series is a Comedy 50:50 production with Eleanor Tiernan and Christine Robertson co-writing some episodes.
