Cleaning Up is a sitcom about a group of night-time office cleaners in Manchester.
Every night, as time is called and people are spat out onto the streets and squeezed into rides home to dream-tossed beds, others are hard at work. Teams of cleaners are in office spaces scrubbing, vacuuming and cleaning up. And right at the bottom of the food chain we find our gang, Spit 'n' Polish, tackling the floors of a plush tower block in Manchester city centre.
Written by Ian Kershaw and with a top-hole Northern cast, this is a sometimes dark comedy about a group of people who are thrown together by their work and who always get the fuzzy end of the lollipop.
