Sky Living HD has commissioned The Spa, a brand new scripted comedy written by the award-winning British writer and actor Derren Litten (Benidorm and The Catherine Tate Show).
This exciting new British comedy ¬is set in a Hertfordshire spa that proudly boasts it can cure anyone; the fat, the thin and the lazy. But sadly that couldn’t be further from the truth.
THE SPA will feature Derren’s trademark larger than life characters, razor-sharp dialogue, and outrageous storytelling. The series features Alison (Rebecca Front), the ambitious yet misguided spa manageress, whose tactless approach and initiatives have a habit of plunging the spa into utter chaos.
The ensemble cast will also feature a number of outlandish characters who work at the spa such as Marcus (Derren Litten) a wheelchair-bound fitness instructor; a particularly well-endowed handy man called Eric (Tim Healy); Davina (Debbie Chazen) a hippie therapist; an over-zealous personal trainer named Vron (Nadine Marshall); a chef with some unusual recipes and a suicidal cleaner.
The Spa is Executive Produced by Lucy Lumsden and Saskia Schuster for Sky and Sophie Clarke-Jervoise (Little Crackers) and Ben Cavey (Benidorm) from Tiger Aspect, and will be produced by Lucy Armitage and is directed by Sandy Johnson (Benidorm).
The Spa will air on Sky Living HD this autumn.
