Rafe Spall stars as twenty-something Pete, a struggling sports writer. Although well meaning, Pete often lacks the emotional maturity required to deal with life's more intricate problems. Pete wishes that life had clearly defined rules... like sport does. But life isn't like sport, as Pete is only beginning to realise.

The unusual twist with this sitcom is that Pete's life is commented on as if it was an exciting sporting event, by two professional sport commentators - anchor man Colin King and former international footballer Terry McIlroy. Colin and Terry discuss and analyse Pete's domestic cock-ups with accompanying statistics, on screen graphics and slow motion replays.
