Russell Tovey to star in ITV1 sitcom ‘The Job Lot’

Posted Filed under

Set in a West Midlands Job Centre, the six 30-minute episodes will focus on “the relationships between the people who work there, and the people who don’t work there, or anywhere else for that matter”.

The supporting cast includes Sophie McShera (Downton Abbey), Tony Maudsley (Benidorm), Martin Marquez (Hotel Babylon), Angela Curran (This Is Jinsy), Jo Enright (Life’s Too Short) and Navin Chowdhry (Teachers).

Executive producers Kenton Allen commented: “The moment I read the script I immediately thought The Job Lot was a comedy idea that captured the spirit of these times and could be the answer to ITV’s ambitions to reignite primetime comedy on ITV1. We are all delighted with the pilot and can’t wait for audiences to get to know the brilliant characters that lurk within Brownall Job Centre.”
