Ideal (BBC-3 2005-2011, Johnny Vegas, Nicola Reynolds)



In sitcom Ideal Moz is a small fry drug dealer living an inner city life. Moz has no ambitions beyond spending a quiet life dealing cannabis to a small group of friends and acquaintances. His key drugs supplier is a local copper called PC who spends more time doped than straight.

Season two advanced the plot with Moz’s long term girlfriend, Nicki, about to give birth, but the father could be any one of three men. Is Moz really about to become a dad for the first time and, if so, will imminent parenthood force him to rethink his choice of career? Probably not..

On Wednesday 28 December 2005 @ 8.30pm BBC-3 showed Three’s Outtakes which featured an interview with Vegas about Ideal and various bloopers.
