Fiona McDermott, acting deputy head of Channel 4 comedy, commented: “Scrotal Recall is a brilliantly written modern comedy, a skilful mix of compelling love story, instantly original characters and erm…..STDs.  We’re totally thrilled that we’ve got such a talented and exciting cast to bring it all to life.”

Murray Ferguson, chief executive  for Clerkenwell Films added: “This is a unique comedy with a fantastic cast, brimming with humour, heart and mild genital discomfort.”

Scrotal Recall is currently filming in Scotland andwill air on Channel 4 this autumn.

The official synopsis reads: “In each comic episode, Dylan seeks out a different girl from his sexual past as he’s forced to remember a romantic encounter he’d previously tried to forget. Not proud of the sizable number of women he’s bedded, Dylan decides to use this quest to make sense of all the squandered opportunities, broken promises, and romantic car-crashes.

“Evie and Luke have been Dylan’s friends for the past decade and decide to help him out in his ‘labour of love’ offering dodgy relationship advice and being around to pick up the pieces when it all goes drastically wrong.”
