Enfield To Take Charge Of ‘Sex And The Chippy’

Harry Enfield has been confirmed as the director of new E4 comedy, Sex And The Chippy. The show is thought to be a mix of The Inbetweeners and the popular HBO series starring boiled horse Sarah Jessica Parker. Now there’s a sentence we thought we’d never type…

The programme – which revolves around three women who meet up in a Liverpool chip shop – started shooting in the North West this week and Enfield agreed to take the reins after Ben Palmer departed to work on the Inbetweeners movie.

Channel 4’s head of comedy Shane Allen promised that the project would be “glossy, raucous, upbeat and excruciating”.

“We pitched it as the older sisters of The Inbetweeners if they were from Liverpool,” writers Neil Jones and Heather Robson told the Liverpool Echo. “The women have boring jobs and go out every weekend to escape their routines and look for a bit of romance. But every week it turns out to be disastrous and the episode starts at the end of the night with their chips.”
