Series 2, Episode 3

Wyn and Charlotte are proud to support a new feature film shooting in Wales, but discover it's not quite the sort of movie they thought it was. Nez calls in outside help to check the security of the agency's website and Elaine samples the very latest Welsh fusion cuisine at a pop-up dining experience.

Further details

Cariad Lloyd guest stars as Bristol chef Llinos Lyn, who brings her pop-up restaurant experience to Cardiff.

Wow! Wales CEO Elaine Gibbons has managed to get a place at Llinos' restaurant, which is based in a disused washing machine factory. Unfortunately for Elaine, whilst there may be a story and meaning behind every course, the portions aren't very filling.

As part of a plan to bring the film industry to Wales, corporate directors Wyn and Charlotte have invested in a film adaptation of a best-selling novel. Having not seen the script, they get a shock when they arrive on set, as they discover that their investment has gone into an adult movie. Things take an even weirder turn when Wyn ends up helping the male star to go through his lines.

Head of Digital Nez invites his friend Deano to attempt to hack into the Wow! Wales website, in order to flag up any weaknesses in the system. He's surprised to find that Deano infiltrates the website pretty quickly, changing the brand to Wow Peru. Further issues arise when Deano's own computer dies, leaving him unable to reverse his changes and Nez filled with anxiety over the situation.

Nez: "I cannot believe that you would turn up at a friend's workplace in order to hack into their website, at their behest, with a computer you knew was on its last legs. It is so irresponsible."
