Pilot

Nick Helm stars as Andy, an out of work musician who is forced to look after his 11-year-old nephew on the day he was planning to kill himself.

Further details

Talented comedian, singer-songwriter and poet, Nick Helm stars as Andy, an out of work musician who is forced to look after his 11-year-old nephew on the day he was planning to kill himself.

Andy's chaotic sister Sam begs him to help her out, just this once. All he has to do is pick up Errol from school, take him to football and get him home before his dad calls...

But, somehow, in Andy's hands this turns into a decadent adventure involving a faked injury, a car crash, a visit to a gay club, a lot of lying and some hard lessons in life.

Notes

Gwen composed by Nick Helm; produced and arranged by Andy Jones.
