A quick-cutting sitcom crossed with a sketch show, set in a hairdressing salon.

The owner of Quick Cuts is Sue (Doon Mackichan), who turns a blind eye to the various faults, failings and eccentricities of her staff. Together with Sue's relentlessly crooked boyfriend Trevor, they are one big dysfunctional family.

The narrative sitcom element of Quick Cuts follows the lives of the staff while the sketch element will be the encounters between the customers and the hairdressers with the camera acting as the mirror in the shop.
