Filming for Episode 1 of the new Sitcom ‘Briefs’ has been completed after being stalled by the Covid-19 pandemic. An exclusive online screening – for ticket holders only – will take place on Monday 21st December 2020. The screening will be available for 7 days until 28th December 2020.
Filming to complete the series is now set for early next year and the full series is scheduled to premiere on-air in Autumn 2021 with the broadcaster yet to be announced.
Briefs was written by actress, writer and qualified barrister Teresa Taylor who is from Redcar and a former student at Rye Hills School in the town. Teresa says “Due to the film industry now struggling, many commissioners for TV channels were furloughed and there was a real reluctance to taking a punt on new productions in the current climate. We are consequently self-funding this TV series completely. We would love to spread some Christmas joy and cheer by taking the unusual step of sharing our first episode with our wonderful supporters and in doing so it also allows us to raise some much needed funds to complete the production.”
Briefs is a sitcom revolving around the day-to-day life of a ‘not so average’ High Street legal practice which is ridiculous, chaotic and altogether mixed up. Filming has been carried out at various locations in Redcar including the beach and the South Gare as well as its main base at Richard J Knaggs on Redcar High Street. The show boasts a Northern cast and crew including former Coronation Street actor Billy Doherty and Redcar-based actor Andy Tate.
