A brand new comedy by writer/star Jessica Knappett debuts on E4 on 31st October
Drifters is a brand new six-part comedy series about three best friends living in Leeds who’ve graduated, had a year out and are struggling to find a job that doesn’t suck, a place to live that is half decent and a boyfriend they actually like.
Written by, and starring, Jessica Knappett, the show explores the very funny, very humiliating experiences of Meg, her eccentric cousin Bunny (Lydia Rose Bewley) and their friend Laura (Lauren O’Rourke) as they discover that life might just be a bit tougher than they had imagined…
From demeaning Promotions jobs complete with mad outfits (well, have you ever dressed as a mobile phone to pay the rent?) to pursuing the men of their dreams – yet dating the men of their nightmares – the girls face #FML-worthy disasters in both their work and personal lives.
Bob Mortimer and Arabella Weir play Meg’s parents and Nick Mohammed is the girls’ insufferable jobs-worth boss Malcolm.
Executive Producers are Damon Beesley, Iain Morris and Simon Wilson and the series is directed by Simon Delaney and produced by Sam Pinnell. Drifters was commissioned by E4 by Comedy Commissioning Editor Rachel Springett.
Bwark Productions is the production company behind E4’s multi-award winning series and film, The Inbetweeners, and is a Zodiak Media Company.
