Changing Ends

[Full series drop available on ITVX here]

Series overview

Alan Carr’s semi-autobiographical sitcom. Head to 80s Northampton, where this football manager’s son-turned-famous comic grew up against the harsh backdrop of Thatcher’s Britain.

Changing Ends is based on Alan’s own life in Northampton in the 1980’s growing up as the son of a fourth division football manager.  

Alan Carr will star in the series as himself in present day, whilst taking on the role of young Alan is Oliver Savell.

Also starring cast Shaun Dooley and Nancy Sullivan playing Alan’s parents Graham and Christine along with Taylor Fay as his younger brother Gary.

Playing Alan’s neighbours are Rourke Mooney and Gabby Best as Charlie and Angela along with Harry Peacock as Nigel. Guest stars include David Mumeni as Mr Chapman and Michael Socha as Adam.

The comedy series will be more than just a trip down memory lane, it’s a love letter to a time and a town where things weren’t always so inclusive. Told with warmth and wit, it follows Alan’s journey through puberty, adolescence, and finally self-discovery, all against the backdrop of Thatcher’s Britain.

As showcased in many of Alan’s stand-up shows, his experience as a gay teenager in the East Midlands is a veritable treasure trove with a rich comedic seam, whether it’s his sexual awakenings, his daily battle with bullies or navigating the highs and lows of Fourth division football. It’s about school and family, Kevin Keegan and George Michael, and figuring out who you are when your family are Match of the Day and you’re a bit Miss Marple.

Episode 4

A brilliant but troubled striker gives the Cobblers a lifeline. While keen birdwatcher Alan becomes eagle eyed at news of a pelican on the loose.
