Sugartown (BBC-1 2011, Shaun Dooley, Philip Jackson)

Comedy drama series Sugar Town takes us into the small seaside town of the title which, situated in the North of England, is not quite the stick-of-rock capital that it once was but the staff of Sugartown’s legendary rock factory have other things on their mind. Jason who owns the factory shocked when his estranged brother Max returns with

plans to redevelop the town, open a casino and close down the factory in the process, the locals of Sugartown are not happy of course and discover that the secret to saving the town may just lie in the world of dance.

Yes that does sound highly surreal doesn’t it and that’s exactly the road that Sugartown is travelling down, part traditional comedy drama and part League of Gentlemen! It’s got a fab cast too.
