Pilot episode of a new comedy by Josie Long about a woman called Josie who has left her life in London for a better one in Glasgow, the indie band theme park, where she will finally be happy and accepted. Her flatmate Darren is just happy having his meals cooked by someone other than his mum.

Together they drink tea and wander the streets searching for romance and adventure, making fun of squares and making up games. It's them against the world, or so Josie hopes. How much can you rely on a friend who doesn't want to grow up?

Based on characters from the short films "Romance and Adventure" and "Let's Go Swimming" by Josie Long and Douglas King.
