New Sky1 ‘Chickens’ Trailer

As the Great War rages, our nation’s heroes are fighting the good fight on foreign soil. But in one sleepy English village, three fellows remain…

The six-part comedy stars, Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners)Jonny Sweet and Joe Thomas (The Inbetweeners) in a new Sky1 comedy beginning Thursday 22nd August at 9.30pm.

Chickens is about three young men who avoid combat in the First World War: George is a conscientious objector, Cecil would love to be fighting for queen and country but his flat feet mean the army won’t have him – and then there’s Bert, a philandering scaredicat on the run.

In the eyes of their neighbours they’re all the same: Chickens. So in a world of (quite sexy) women, children and the infirm these twenty-something chaps have only each other for company – and nothing else in common.
