Buy Me Up TV

BBC Radio 2 sitcom. 5 episodes (pilot + 1 series), 2007 - 2008. Stars Justin Edwards, Katherine Jakeways, Alex Macqueen, Greg Proops, Ewen MacIntosh and Colin Hoult.


Owned by a vast American cable network, Buy Me Up TV is a 24-hour live broadcast channel selling rubbish to the nation.

In the back rooms and offices of the channel, the high pressure of live broadcast meets the high pressure of sales. Amongst the egos, tantrums, disasters and jealousies, the characters are swimming for their lives in a sales-driven pressure cooker. Then, suddenly, it's Lights, Camera, Action!
