Tight Spot 
Siobhan Redmond, Douglas Hodge, Rasmus Hardiker & Nina Wadia in Lift

BBC Four finds itself in a Tight Spot



Lift


Douglas Hodge (Vanity Fair, Mansfield Park, Spooks), Rasmus Hardiker (Lead Balloon, Saxondale), Nina Wadia (New Tricks, All About Me) and Siobhan Redmond (The Catherine Tate Show, The Smoking Room) star in Lift, a new comedy written by the Edinburgh 2006 if.comedie Panel Award winner Mark Watson, who also recently won the 2006 Time Out Critics' Choice award.

 

On the edge of meltdown, businessman Paul Sykes (Douglas Hodge) is late for a make-or-break meeting.

 

Sunita (Nina Wadia) will not shut up about her inappropriate life experiences.

 

Rocco (Rasmus Hardiker) is a 17-year-old with seven different, very major phobias.

 

Christabel (Siobhan Redmond) is dangerously jolly and is challenged in the bladder area.

 

Four ill-fitting people who want to be as far away as possible from one another. Unfortunately this isn't possible. They're stuck in a lift.

 

Will they ever get out? If they do, will there still be four of them alive? It's like Lost but quite a lot more cramped.

 

Lift is produced by Mark Freeland (Supernova) and directed by James Hawes (Doctor Who), the executive producers are Beryl Vertue (Coupling, Men Behaving Badly) and Sue Vertue (Coupling, Fear, Stress & Anger).

 

Lift is a Hartswood Films production for BBC Four.
