Girlband - Pilot - The Web

Award winning comedy writer-performers Those Three Girls (Carly Sheppard, Lucy Barnett and Susannah Adele) present the pilot episode of their sitcom Girlband.

Jenny and Debra are the last surviving members of the fanclub of long-forgotten nineties pop trio, Girlband: Girlband, United, Now and Then (GUNT). The band split up 15 years ago, but a true fan never forgets, and Jenny and Debra have continued to hold weekly meetings in the fanclub headquarters ever since. As the women celebrate their 900th meeting, their worlds are about to be turned upside down by the arrival of an unexpected new member. Ceri is relocating from Wales with boyfriend Gareth to live in the fanclub headquarters in Debra's house. As a Girlband tribute artiste, Ceri is anticipating a warm welcome, and an opportunity to make a fresh start in the big city (/Croydon) and take her unconventional relationship with Gareth to the next level. Meanwhile, Jenny's mother Carol has enlisted the help of Debra's younger brother Neil to help set up her internet dating profile. Neil is experienced with online love, as he dreams of making a life with the online girlfriend he has never met, and escaping the clutches of his overbearing older sister. This is devastating news to Jenny, who has been plucking up the courage to declare her feelings for Neil for as long as she can remember. With only Girlband in common, will Jenny, Debra and Ceri's shared obsession translate into the friendship the lonely women all yearn for?

Will Girlband's last surviving fanclub... survive?
