Channel 4 launches it new satirical sketch show; Lee and Dean, this Friday night, drawing interest from big names in the world of comedy such as Scottish director Armando Iannuci and Sex and the city’s Kim Cattral. Themed around two satirically stereotypical Stevenage-based builders who “work together, live together and play together,” the series is written, directed and enacted by newcomers Miles Chapman and Mark O’Sullivan.
In this debut episode, we meet Lee and Dean, the owners of the imaginatively named “Lee and Dean Solutions” – a shifty construction company in Stevenage. Lee becomes smitten with his new love interest, Nikki, who subsequently moves into the two builders’ flat putting childhood friend Dean’s nose out of joint.
Lee and Dean – Friday 10:00pm on Channel 4.
