Mr Sloane (Sky Atlantic 2014, Nick Frost, Ophelia Lovibond)

Mr Sloane

Comedy drama series set in 1969 when middle aged, overweight Mr Sloane, newly seperated and newly sacked meets much younger American girl Robin.

Specially written for Nick Frost by Robert B Weide, the creator of American sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm. Sadly despite strong critical reviews Sky decided not to press ahead with a second series which is a shame as it had a lot going for it.
