Alex Macqueen stars in Sam Bain's adaptation of his own dark comic novel about a man so obsessed with TV celebrity gossip that it stops him from living his actual life.
Sam Bain (Peep Show, Fresh Meat) has adapted his novel Yours Truly, Pierre Stone into a dark and disconcerting 4 x 15 radio comedy. The story is told in Pierre's own voice as he records messages for his most favourite TV star, Tess Daly and asks her all about her life, messages that are doomed to go forever unanswered.
But Pierre's passion to find out more about Tess's favourite dress gets in the way of him dealing with his own problems, including a mother in hospital and mounting uncertainty about where his next meal is coming from...
Pierre is a TV trivia obsessed innocent living in a world whose bigger challenges he would rather not think about.
Starring Alex Macqueen (The Thick of It) as Pierre.
Produced by Gareth Edwards
A BBC Studios Production.
