E4 announce cast for new comedy series, Wasted.
Danny Kirrane, Dylan Edwards, Gwyneth Keyworth and Rose Reynolds to front E4’s latest comedy series 'Wasted', which also stars Sean Bean.
Combine a gang of four twenty-something wasters, one West Country village and the ex-Lord of Winterfell and you’ve got Wasted. E4’s hilarious new comedy series, (6x30’), from triple BAFTA Award winning writing team James Lamont and Jon Foster (Cuckoo, Paddington, Amazing World of Gumball.)
Lovable fantasy fanatic Morpheus, (Danny Kirrane- Trollied), manages a bong shop, (Stoned Henge) with his neurotic sister Sarah (Rose Reynolds-The World’s End). His secret crush is their mate Alison (Gwyneth Keyworth- Game of Thrones), the quirky girl who runs a tattoo business out the back of the shop, and his cocky best friend Kent (Dylan Edwards-The Job Lot) sleeps on the sofa, rent free. Together they’ve been living in each other’s pockets since school and aren’t moving anywhere fast.
But Morpheus is a dreamer, and his dreams take the form of his hero Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), who appears in full medieval garb, as Morpheus' personal spirit guide, to help him navigate the rough seas of wasting your twenties.
Fun, facetious and jam-packed with surreal visual sequences, Wasted is a series about the stupid things you get up to when there's nothing much to do.
The 6x30’ comedy was ordered by Channel 4 Head of Comedy, Phil Clarke and Commissioning Editor for Comedy, Liz Lewin. Made by Angel Eye Media, the Executive Producers are John O’Callaghan and Richard Osborne. Produced by Phil Bowker (PhoneShop, Pulling) and Directed by Tom Marshall (Chewing Gum, Drifters).
Of the series Liz Lewin said, “We can’t wait to bring a bit of Westeros to Wiltshire with the Wasted gang’s adventures. Their exploits across the series are hilarious and ludicrous in equal measure – the perfect mix for an E4 audience”.
Filming is underway and Wasted is due to air on E4 this summer.
