Gwyneth Powell (aka Grange Hill’s Mrs McCluskey) is back on our screens this week in a hilarious new Channel 4 sitcom. Entitled ‘Man Down’ the show is a comedy series written by and starring Greg Davies as Dan, a childish idiot whose world is on the brink of collapse. Dan’s inability to navigate life’s simple tasks is driving his girlfriend crazy. He hates his job and his two best friends don’t exactly have a firm grasp of reality. Gwyneth plays Dan’s mother, whilst his father is played by Rik Mayall.
Gwyneth told us all about this when we interviewed her a few months ago. “”Presently I’m filming a new 6 part sitcom for Channel 4 called Man Down, with Greg Davies and Rik Mayall. It’s due to screen in September and, naturally, we hope it will be a terrific success!”
You can make up your own minds when Man Down airs on Channel 4 for the next 6 weeks.
MAN DOWN, Channel 4, 21:30
Starts Friday 18th October.
