'The January Rush'

A brand new sitcom for BBC Radio 4 written by and starring Kieran Hodgson.

Set in a micro-gym in Worthing, the team at Dawson Fitness are trying to spearhead an exercise revolution from their base in a former charity shop.

Personalities clash, ambitions outstrip capabilities, and people who sign up for a free session in January stubbornly refuse to commit to a membership in spite of all the psychological bullying. In this pilot episode, Lucy Dawson is determined to turn around the business, and revitalise her own career prospects in the process. Sadly the rest of her team - Kate, Frankie and Jake- don't take too kindly, or competently, to change. But if they can just retain their January customers, then they're surely onto a winner.
