Episode 1 of 4

Ben and Alex's latest series comes from their flat, and they are glad of the new-found 'creative freedom', as long as they can avoid any unwelcome intrusions.

The latest series from Ben and Alex, aka "The Pin", is a sketch-sitcom hybrid. The award-winning sketch duo are forced to record their latest series in their flat and the boys are glad of the new creative freedom this opportunity presents, away from the "prying eyes of the BBC". Unfortunately, their creative freedom is short-lived, thanks to numerous intrusions from the boys' unlucky neighbour Maria, Ben's mother and an AirBnB lodger who's in town for a stag party.
