White Gold (BBC-2 2017, Ed Westwick, Joe Thomas)

White Gold

White Gold is the story of a double-glazing showroom in Essex in 1983, led by charismatic salesman Vincent (Ed Westwick). Smart, handsome and cocksure, Vincent will happily break the rules if it guarantees a sale. It’s a story of dodgy shenanigans, scams and petty rivalries – alongside free-flowing drugs, cash and sex.

Ed Westwick says: “I am very excited to be stepping into the world of White Gold. It’s brilliantly crafted and very unique, a special piece. I’m sure a great road lies ahead and I couldn’t be in better company than with the BBC and Fudge Park.”

Shane Allen, Head of BBC Comedy Commissioning, says: “I’m delighted to be back in the ring with Damon as I absolutely adore his writing. These characters jump off the page and get you in a headlock. The story-telling combines raucous knockabout humour with a really powerful and emotionally engaging undertow.”
