Iain Stirling’s Buffering is coming to ITV2

New 6-part sitcom Buffering, created, written by and starring BAFTA-winning comedian Iain Stirling (Love Island, CelebAbility, Taskmaster), with co-creator and writer BBC New Comedy Award winning Steve Bugeja (The Russell Howard Hour, CelebAbility, Economics with Subtitles), is set to air with a double episode (each episode is 30 minutes) on ITV2 at 10pm on Thursday 5 August, with the entire box set landing on ITV Hub immediately after.

Buffering follows Iain (Iain Stirling), a children’s TV presenter with an aversion to kids and in an up and down relationship (mainly down) with TV producer Olivia (Elena Saurel – Around the World in 80 Days, Killing Eve, Gold Digger). Iain’s housemates Rosie (Jessie Cave – Harry Potter, Trollied, Black Mirror), Greg (Paul G Raymond) Ashley (Rosa Robson – The Offenders, Inside No. 9) and Thalia (Janine Harouni – Modern Horror Stories, Patrick Melrose, Stand-Up Sketch Show) alongside Ashley’s old flame Robbie (Sean Sagar – Fate: The Winx Saga, The Gentleman, Our Girl), are all navigating that age where they’re too old for nightclubs but too poor for mortgages.

Part of a generation who are told they must live the perfect life, these friends discover it’s not only ok but healthy to fail, over and over again.

There’s also a large cast of guests, and you can find out more about Buffering in the ITV press release.
