Channel Premiere: Sorted

UKTV – Wednesday 17 October, 9.30pm

Follow the lives of six working class men in North West England. This everyman drama doesn’t shirk the knotty complexities of modern life and shows that, behind closed doors, we all have our secrets, passions, and fears. Six regular Manchester lads – Harry, Charlie, Radge, Dex, Barmpot and Jack – are thrown headlong into drama in these bold and emotional stories about life, love, family and everything in between. Set in a world we all know, Sorted has the kind of warmth and wit that makes every situation, however dark, resonate with a sense of real hope and optimism.

Stars: Neil Dudgeon (The Street and Bridget Jones – The Edge of Reason), Hugo Speer (Bleak House and The Full Monty), Dean Lennox Kelly (Shameless and A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Will Mellor (Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps).
