Set on a fictional UK university campus, Off The Hook explores the lives of a mis-matched group of fresh-faced students as they embark on university life and their first taste of independence, with all the mishaps and misadventures that entails.
Danny is a new university 'fresher' who just wants to cut his past loose and get on with his life... but he's about to get an earth-shattering blast from the past in the form of Shane, his outrageous 'slacker' mate from school - the 'worst best friend ever'. Blagging his way into last minute clearing, Shane proceeds to gatecrash Danny's entire uni existence and ransack his best-laid plans.
Danny and Shane have been friends for as long as they can remember, but as they embark on their university adventures, can their friendship withstand the test? Will they even manage to make it to the end of term alive?
Sharing accommodation with our hapless heroes are the feisty Scarlet and the permanently morose Fred, a man who has misanthropy down to an art.
Off The Hook sees the four students muddling through bad dates, worse parties, social mishaps, financial disasters, political coups... and all the other trials and tribulations of life as a fresher.
