I talk to Samson Kayo & Theo Barklem-Biggs

"I got my confidence from watching Michaela Coel's Chewing Gum and seeing how a black girl from London has created a phenomenon of a show."

Elliot Gonzalez, I Talk Telly, 13th May 2019

TV preview: Sliced, Dave

Sliced, co-written by seasoned hand Phil Bowker who worked on PhoneShop, is only three episodes - being screened over consecutive nights - but like the best Italian food it leaves you wanting more.
