New Series – Fresh Meat – Wednesday 21st September – 10:00pm C4

By September 20, 2011

New series 'Fresh Meat' is starting on Wednesday 21st September at 10:00pm on Channel 4 which was edited by Calum Ross and Line Produced by Tracie Wright.

'Fresh Meat' is a comedy drama series about the hilarious and painful truths of being a student. The latest creation from Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, Fresh Meat follows a group of six students about to embark on the most exciting period of their lives so far – university.

Shipping up as freshers at their shared house are: JP, public school boy with good teeth and an inflated sense of entitlement; Kingsley, charming and crushingly insecure; Josie, determined to experience 'new things'; socially-awkward know-it-all Howard, hard-living Vod; and Oregon, desperate to be cool and terrified of being boring.

One by one, the six new students destined to be housemates congregate before term begins – although second year Howard has of course already been in solitary residence for some unspecified time.

There are already some surprises in store: to his considerable bemusement, Kingsley manages to pull at the pub; Oregon locks horns with her lecturer, Professor Shales, at her first English tutorial; and Josie ends up in bed with JP – a random encounter after which, to her horror, she realises he is in fact there to stay.

Fresh Meat guest stars Robert Webb as geology lecturer Dan, and Tony Gardner as Professor Shales.
