25th January 2021:
A new 8 x 60 min comedy drama series starring BAFTA winning comedian Greg Davies (Man Down, Cuckoo, Taskmaster). Michael Leer (Greg Davies) is a psychotherapist in a small market town in England. A likable eccentric and one of life’s listeners, Michael is seemingly a safe pair of hands. But Michael’s clients are sharing their inner secrets and fears with a fantasist who will no longer sit in the shadows. The advice Michael Leer dispenses is that which suits his own desperate need to control them. For Michael’s clients their ‘Safe Space’ is no longer safe at all.
