Man Down - Series 1

Greg Davies, acclaimed stand-up comedian, Mr Gilbert in the hit TV series and film The Inbetweeners, and BAFTA-nominated star of Cuckoo, writes and stars in this sitcom, which also features 2010 Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer winner, Roisin Conaty (Impractical Jokers), Rik Mayall (The Young Ones), Deirdre Mullins (Whitechapel), 2013 Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, Mike Wozniak (Live At The Electric), Gwyneth Powell (Grange Hill) and Jeany Spark (Wallander).

This new sitcom introduces Dan (Greg Davies), a childish idiot trapped in an adult's life. Crushing character flaws, an unwanted teaching job, uniquely dysfunctional friends and a willfully insane Dad conspire to keep this Man Down.

Dan's world is at near collapse, his girlfriend Naomi (Mullins) is fast running out of patience with his inability to navigate the simplest of life tasks, while his best friends are Jo (Conaty) who has, what can only be described as, the loosest of grasp on reality and Brian (Wozniak), a straight-laced financial adviser who is regularly dumbfounded by the complete idiocy of his two friends. To compound matters Dan's listless teaching career sees him begrudgingly teach a version of the same lesson every day, inexplicably popular with all but one of the pupils, with his only highlight coming in the form of Miss Lipsey (Spark), a head mistress who views Dan with a mixture of pity and despair. Tormented daily by his father (Mayall) whose driving motivation in life seems to be to ensure his son is humiliated at every turn, not to mention regularly physically attacked, does so while keeping it almost completely under the radar of his wife and Dan's mum (Powell).
