Filmed in December 2018 and January 2019, Downie also acted as executive producer on the comedy following Paul, a journalist working for the fictional Jewish Enquirer, supposedly "Britain's fourth largest Jewish publication".
Magnet Films tease: "Paul spends his days treading the mean streets of Finchley in search of the scoops that make 'The Jewish Enquirer' essential reading for his community. Headline stories include "Jewish Film Festival Opens with Jewish-Themed Film: Exclusive", "Chief Rabbi Shops at Marks and Spencer: Exclusive" and "Cloudy Weather in Tel Aviv: Exclusive".
"Paul's meagre journalistic ambitions must contend with the baby-sitting demands of his sweary sister, Naomi and the search for true love pursued by his neurotic best friend Simon. Comic icon Geoff McGivern completes the regular cast as Paul's cynical father Ronnie."
Gary Sinyor says: "I wanted to create a mainstream comedy about a truth-seeking journalist with big ambitions who is limited to hunting down rubbish stories for a small-time paper. Some of the greats of British comedy history show you can laugh both at and with opinionated men frustrated by the challenges of day-to-day living. Paul is clumsy, stubborn and obsessively befuddled by just about everything. As am I."
Tim Downie adds: "Going from playing the arrogant Governor Tyron in Outlander to broad comedy is part of the joy of being an actor. The characters that Gary has created say things that I suspect people would like to say but daren't. It's funny and irreverent with a great deal of charm."
Sinyor quips: "Anyone who doesn't like it is an anti-Semite."
Paul Green (Tim Downie) is an ambitious but hapless journalist working for a very small-minded publisher. He's constantly ambushed by his sister Naomi (Lucy Montgomery) for childcare duties, whilst his Dad Ronnie (Geoff McGivern) is still as competitive as a child. His single friend Simon (Josh Howie) is off the scale neurotic.
