Brassic - Joe Gilgun

Joe Gilgun and Michelle Keegan star in this hotly-anticipated
comedy about how to win at life in the land that craft beer forgot.
Meet Vinnie; shrewd, inventive, bipolar and follically challenged.

Him and his Lancashire-based band of misfits go from caper to
caper and try to have a laugh while doing it.

In the opening episode, we join Vinnie during a less than stellar day that involves a cross-country car chase, a Shetland pony, a jar of chloroform and a pigeon named Nigel.

All this gets Vinnie and his crew tangled with a local crime boss who sets out to make an example of them. Then, in the second chapter of this Lancashire odyssey, the boys plan a heist at a strip club, but when things go awry they find their escape route is blocked by a colossal fatberg. Better get digging.

Brassic – Thursday at 10.00pm on Sky One.
