Dave will screen a brand new fantasy comedy series featuring former star of hit E4 show The Inbetweeners, James Buckley.
Zapped! follows the misadventures of data marketing assistant Brian Weaver (Buckley), after he finds himself transported to a fantastical parallel world inhabited by warriors, wizards, soothsayers, and fairies who all frequent the local pub.
Desperate to get home, Brian must navigate his bizarre new surroundings if he is to return to the safety of his office life. The three-part serial also stars Game of Thrones' Paul Kaye and My Mad Fat Diary's Sharon Rooney as locals of the magical plane, with a guest appearance from Steve Coogan who will executive produce the show.
"Zapped! is fantasy, heightened reality and lots of escapism, with one foot firmly in the real world." Said Coogan. "It has all the requisite elements to take the audience on a journey to this slightly mad world; from wizards and spells to mermaids, psychopathic fairies, smartphones and then back to the boring office job. We have a great cast on board, led by the brilliant James Buckley."
Zapped! is produced by comedy indy Baby Cow Productions. The show goes in to production in June and will air on Dave in the autumn.
