Further details

New boss Casey arrives from the US for a "flying visit" and immediately fires a rocket up the gang - they need to start developing new content. And fast. But the boys, freshly-minted millionaires, have other things on their mind.

Leon returns to his former school as the conquering hero in a desperate and somewhat pathetic bid to impress his old teacher. Josh gets involved in a charity event in a bid to impress ex-girlfriend Abi. Watto struggles to reconcile his new moneyed status with his hardcore punk background and Ewan fights to make a positive impression on their new boss.

When the grim spectre of churning out a cynical sequel to Cat Factory 2 rears its ugly head, the gang stand firm. Casey relents: "No sequel." But on one condition - she moves to London permanently.... "Just for a bit of oversight..."
