The Job Lot

The Job Lot

New ITV sitcom starring Russell Tovey and Sarah Hadland.

Work is at the centre of this sitcom from the award-winning producers of Rev. and Friday Night Dinner, featuring an impressive ensemble cast of renowned comedy actors. It's work - or the lack of it - that brings the characters together, and their relationships - or lack of them - around which The Job Lot revolves.

Set in a job centre where the staff attempt, with varying degrees of enthusiasm, to help people find work, it's full of the often laugh out loud moments that anyone who's ever worked in an office will recognise. Neurotic manager Trish runs the Brownall Job Centre aided by a mixed-bag of staff, including reluctant and truculant Karl, the less-than-helpful Angela and two uniquely skilled security guards, all facing the challenges of dealing with customers who don't always appreciate their efforts.
