Josie Long: Romance And Adventure

BBC Radio 4 sitcom. 5 episodes (pilot + 1 series), 2014 - 2016. Stars Josie Long, Darren Osbourne, Hatty Ashdown, Clare Grogan, Michael Bertenshaw and Chris Pavlo.


Josie has left her life in London for a better one in Glasgow, the indie band theme park where she will finally be happy and accepted. Her flatmate Darren is just happy having his meals cooked by someone other than his mum. Together they drink tea and wander the streets searching for romance, adventure or a job, making fun of squares and making up games. It's them against the world, or so Josie hopes. How much can you rely on a friend who doesn't want to grow up?
