88 Keys

Sitcom pilot about a "loudmouth cocktail pianist", starring Tim Minchin and Kayvan Novak


Charlie (Tim Minchin) is a loudmouth cocktail pianist with grand ambitions. Amy is a walking failure about to have her first brush with responsibility. This pair of monstrous rampaging ego-morons have just one thing in common - they both find themselves under the employ of The Carlton Arms Hotel. And when a rare fruit causes unseen complications, Charlie and Amy find their futures irrevocably entwined...

88 Keys is a new sitcom starring the multi award-winning stand-up and composer and co-creator of stage musical Matilda, Tim Minchin, from the producers of Spaced, Black Books, Rev. and Friday Night Dinner.

Sparks WILL fly. Cos this hotel ain't big enough for the both of them. (Although there is a lovely function room.)

Also starring as Haif the barman is BAFTA award-winning Kayvan Novak, who received Best Comedy Performance for Fonejacker.

Written by Jon Brown, directed by Martin Dennis and produced by Nira Park.
