Sean Bean will star in a new Channel 4 comedy Wasted.
The show from BAFTA-winning writing duo James Lamont and Jon Foster (Cuckoo), centres around four friends in the West Country who pass their time getting wasted.
Morpheus (Danny Kirrane – Trollied) is a fantasy fanatic who runs a bong shop with his neurotic sister Sarah (Rose Reynolds – The World’s End). He harbours a flame for their quirky mate Alison (Gwyneth Keyworth – Game of Thrones) who runs a tattoo parlour from the back of the shop.
Joining the trio of reprobates is cocky best mate Kent (Dylan Edwards – The Job Lot) who sleeps on their sofa rent free.
However serial fantasist Morpheus loves to dream, and those dreams take the form of Sean Bean, garbed in Medieval attire who acts as his personal spirit guide and helps him to begin to navigate through the labyrinth of early adulthood.
Channel 4’s Liz Lewin described the show as “hilarious and ludicrous in equal measure – the perfect mix for an E4 audience.”
Bizarre, daft and hilarious, Wasted shows what can happen when there’s not much else to do.
The show is due to air on E4 this summer.
