Brand new comedy Timewasters comes to ITV2.
ITV2 has commissioned Timewasters, a brand new 6 x 30 comedy written and created by Daniel Lawrence Taylor, arriving on the channel from multi award-winning producers Big Talk Productions (The Job Lot, Rev, Cockroaches).
Timewasters is a comedy about a struggling four-piece South London jazz band who travel back in time to the 1920's via a urine-sodden lift in a dilapidated block of flats.
Our time travelling friends are Daniel Lawrence Taylor (Cockroaches, Uncle) who plays Nick, Kadiff Kirwan (Chewing Gum, Crims), who plays Jason, Adelayo Adedayo (Skins, Some Girls), who plays Lauren and Samson Kayo (Youngers, The Javone Prince Show), who plays Horace.
Stuck in the past after their 'time machine' is destroyed, our gang decide to explore, before quickly discovering that being young and black in the Jazz Age is a lot less genteel and a lot more shady than Downton Abbey had led them to believe.
Aided and abetted by a pair of oddball twins and some 1920s luminaries (including John Logie Baird, played by Kevin Eldon), the band are forced to navigate the parties and pitfalls of the Roaring Twenties while searching for a way back home. All the while, not missing the opportunity to introduce the Bright Young Things to some of the twenty-first century's finest tunes.
Timewasters is a Big Talk production, written and created by Daniel Lawrence Taylor. Executive Producers are Big Talk Chief Executive, Kenton Allen (Rev, Him & Her, Mum) and Saurabh Kakkar (Brian Pern, Security Men). Josh Cole (Cockroaches, Crashing) is Producer with George Kane (Crashing) as Director. Barunka O'Shaughnessy (Camping, Hunderby) is script editor.
