(London: Friday 21st December) It was announced today that Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2018 Rose Matafeo’s brand new three-part comedy Blaps series Rose Matafeo: Temp will premiere on Channel 4’s All4 and Youtube on Friday 21st December.
Rose Matafeo: Temp is a brilliant, bold and stylish comedy series showing a slice of life of a transient temp worker and their interactions with three colourful characters in the same office building. Temp boasts a talented cast featuring Joe Wilkinson, Ellie White, Vivian Acheampong and Gabby Best.
Rose Matafeo said: “It was a thrill to convince such a talented group of comedians to help play out an offbeat fantasy of temp life in these Blaps. Hopefully these little vignette-ish glimpses into the high drama of low stakes office life make some of you laugh.”
This news marks Rose’s writing debut with the network and forms the latest installment in the iconic Comedy Blaps series which has provided the birthplace for hit shows such as Chewing Gum, GameFace, High & Dry, and Stath Lets Flats.
An Avalon production, Rose Matafeo: Temp is written by Rose Matafeo, produced by Tom Miller, directed by Al Campbell and Exec Produced by Rob Aslett, Richard Allen-Turner and Jon Thoday. Temp also features Joe Wilkinson, Ellie White, Gabby Best, Ray Badran and Vivienne Acheampong.
