Alan Davies stars as 'executive chef' Roland White in BBC comedy drama WHITES. Set in the fast-moving kitchen of a country house hotel, the series follows Roland's many ups and downs, as he deals with the fact that he's well past his prime. 15 years ago he could have joined the heady ranks of celebrity chefdom, but laziness got the better of him and bitterness continues to nibble away. Roland's long suffering sous chef Bib (Darren Boyd) is left to pick up the slack, but he's got competition in the form of cocky apprentice Skoose (Stephen Wight). The hilarious and cringingly-relatable comedy also stars THE IT CROWD's Katherine Parkinson as restaurant manager Caroline, with Maggie Steed as batty hotel owner Celia.
Green Wing's Stephen Mangan stars as Dr. Richard Pitt, a therapist trying to relaunch his career after the disastrous collapse of his group therapy practice. His new form of therapy, carried out via weekly quick-fire webcam sessions, examines a hilariously outrageous catalogue of neuroses, phobias, issues, anxieties and psychopathies - and not all of them belong to his patients! When you add in teenage children, unconventional parents, an anally-fixated therapist and a high-flying wife (who has issues of her own - not the least of which is a perverse boss with a vivid fantasy life) then what hope does Richard have? In fact, what hope do any of his clients have..? Adapted from the Emmy-nominated American comedy series Web Therapy, this heavily improvised and startlingly unpredictable comedy guest stars some of Britain's best-loved actors, including David Tennant, Jessica Hynes, Charles Dance, Richard E. Grant, Katherine Parkinson, Celia Imrie, Paul Ritter, Karl Theobald and Arsher Ali.
