‘Yet another charmingly underrated sitcom from Craig Cash.’ – Chortle.
Bucket loads of charm – Daily Telegraph.
After Hours is a sitcom written by me and Molly Naylor. It was directed by Craig Cash and produced by his production company Jellylegs. Craig helped Molly and I get a sitcom from its early stages of an idea in a pub to being on TV. It was first broadcast on Sky 1 in November 2015. It stars Jaime Winstone, Ardal O’Hanlon, BAFTA winner Georgina Campbell, the Fast Show’s John Thomson. James Tarpey plays the main character WILLOW, an 18 year old who is obsessed with music and radio, particularly a late night show called After Hours, hosted by Jaime’s character Lauren and her friend Ollie (Rob Kedrick). It also stars the nation’s finest actress Susan Cookson as Willow’s mum. We like to think of After Hours as a sitcom for BBC 6Music listeners. The theme tune is a cover of the Velvet Underground song After Hours recorded by Pete Doherty, which he did especially for the show. Other songs featured include Modest Mouse, The Mountain Goats, Patti Smith and Pixies.
We’ve loved making After Hours and would totally love to do more.
