Coming soon to ITV.
The series is set in a busy West Midlands job centre and focuses on the relationships between the people that work there and the people that don’t work there, or anywhere else for that matter. It’s work, or the lack of it, that brings the characters together, and their relationships, or lack of them, around which the series revolves.
The Job Lot boasts an impressive ensemble cast that includes Sophie McShera (Downton Abbey), Tony Maudsley (Benidorm), Jo Enright (Life’s Too Short), Martin Marquez (Hotel Babylon), Angela Curran (This is Jinsy), Adeel Akhtar (Four Lions) and Tamla Kari (The Inbetweeners Movie).
The Job Lot tells the story of neurotic Trish (Hadland), who runs the Brownall job centre aided by her staff, including reluctant and truculent Karl (Tovey). Joining them in the day-to-day madness are co-worker Angela (Enright), who is a woman so sour she could curdle milk, and plain speaking Danielle (Kari), who has just returned to work after giving birth.
Protecting the staff of the Brownall job centre are two security guards; diminutive Janette (Curran) and her colleague, cheeky charmer Paul (Marquez). Their unique skills are unlikely to be tested if the job centre regulars such as Graham (Maudsley) and Bryony (McShera) are the kind of ‘customers’ they have to contend with. Never fear, as, fraud officer George (Akhtar) is on their case – a lone wolf who takes his undercover surveillance work very seriously.
