Company

A sitcom set behind the scenes of a celebrity gossip. It follows the ups and downs of the production team working on the weekly show.

Each week the storyline revolves around the team's desperate attempts to fire-fight a variety of disasters involving that particular week's celebrity guests.

The action takes place on both sides of the studio cameras. The show's guest bands and interviewees are real celebrities, but the production staff and the shows presenters are played by young comedy actors.

Each episode features cameo performances from the UK's hottest bands and celebrities that interweave into sitcom's topical storyline.

The action is spontaneous as the cast are given the scene outlines, but the dialogue is improvised as they go.
