If you’ve watched any UK TV in the past couple of weeks, you can’t fail to have seen the trailer for Mr Sloane, a new series made for Sky Atlantic. But did you notice a couple of familiar TVO-connected faces?
Kevin Eldon makes a fleeting appearance in what appears to be a job interview for Mr Sloane (who is played by Nick Frost), and Peter Serafinowicz also features as one of the main cast members, Sloane’s friend, Ross.
The new six-part series follows the story of Mr Sloane, a non-swinging 1960’s man in crisis. Between his failed attempts at marriage, career success and suicide, 1969 isn’t shaping up to be the Watford-dweller’s year. Part drama, part comedy, Mr Sloane starts on Sky Atlantic on Friday 23rd May at 9pm.
As you’d expect of a brand new series from Sky, there are plenty of behind-the-scenes facts, figures and videos to enjoy. Head on over to our friends at the British Comedy Guide to experience it all.
