New comedy White Gold starring Ed Westwick coming to BBC Two
is the story of a double-glazing showroom in Essex in 1983, led by charismatic salesman Vincent (Westwick). Smart, handsome and cocksure, Vincent will happily break the rules if it guarantees a sale. It’s a story of dodgy shenanigans, scams and petty rivalries – alongside free-flowing drugs, cash and sex.
Ed Westwick says: “I am very excited to be stepping into the world of
. It’s brilliantly crafted and very unique, a special piece. I’m sure a great road lies ahead and I couldn’t be in better company than with the BBC and Fudge Park.”
Shane Allen, Head of BBC Comedy Commissioning, says: “I’m delighted to be back in the ring with Damon as I absolutely adore his writing. These characters jump off the page and get you in a headlock. The story-telling combines raucous knockabout humour with a really powerful and emotionally engaging undertow.”
Damon Beesley, Writer, Director and Co-Founder of Fudge Park, says: “I would like to thank the BBC and Shane Allen for giving us this glorious opportunity to recreate the Essex of my youth – a time before the invention of ‘Essex girls’ jokes, fake tan or TOWIE. A time when having double-glazed patio doors installed meant you were winning at life. It’s hugely exciting to work with such a talented, brilliant cast and quite frankly I can’t wait for shooting to start.”
is set to begin filming in Essex autumn 2016 for broadcast on BBC Two in 2017.
