BBC Three’s brand new six-part comedy series Dead Boss premieres tonight, Thursday June 14th, at 10:30pm and stars EDWARD HOGG.
Created by Sharon Horgan and Holly Walsh, Dead Boss revolves around Helen Stephens (Horgan) who is falsely imprisoned for murdering her boss and sent to HMP Broadmarsh to serve her sentence. Initially, she is sure that it is only a matter of time before this horrible mistake is sorted and she is back to her old life. However, everyone else around Helen seems to be conspiring to keep her on the inside for one reason or another.
EDWARD stars as Henry, Helen’s obsessive ex-colleague. Working as an accountant at Totally Tiles, he is completely infatuated with Helen. Her conviction is a great opportunity for him to spend some quality alone time with her, even if that time is during Broadmarsh visiting hours surrounded by criminals.
The show boasts a fantastic cast including comedy legend Jennifer Saunders as the Prison Governor, Geoff McGivern as Tony, Bryony Hannah as Christine, Aisling Bea as Laura, Amanda Lawrence as Mary and Lizzie Roper as ‘Top Dog’.
Don’t miss the first TWO episodes tonight, which will air back-to-back (the series will then continue every Thursday, with one ep. per week).
