The Midlands Job Centre opens its doors once again for a brand new second series this autumn as The Job Lot moves to its new home on ITV2.
Sarah Hadland (Miranda, Horrible Histories) and Russell Tovey (Him & Her, Looking) both return as Trish and Karl with Laura Aikman (Casualty, Lemon La Vida Loca) joining the show as new deputy manager Natalie.
The impressive ensemble cast also return; Sophie McShera (Downton Abbey), Tony Maudsley (Benidorm), Jo Enright (Life’s Too Short), Martin Marquez (Hotel Babylon), Angela Curran (This is Jinsy) and Adeel Akhtar (Utopia).
This series also sees a variety of guest stars walk through the job centre’s sliding doors with Meera Syal as the highly successful CEO of a Midlands hot tub company, Keith Duffy as a telephone engineer with a roving eye, Mark Benton as a job centre advisor who finds Angela irresistible and Rosie Cavaliero as Trish’s rival job centre manager.
Episode One
It is deputy manager Natalie’s first day at Brownall Job Centre, but after a night of drinks celebrating Trish’s divorce, the office gossip is more focused around who Karl went home with. Guest Star Dylan Edwards.
