A boutique hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon is the setting for the latest original comedy for UKTV’s Gold channel. Do Not Disturb stars comedy actress Catherine Tate and Car Share actress Sian Gibson, and is due to TX from January 2016 as part of the on-going commissioning investment from the multi-award winning media company.
“We’re delighted that Catherine Tate will bring her unique wit and comedy genius to the heart of this landmark programme for Gold. Do Not Disturb has all the hallmarks of a brilliant comedic set up that will resonate with the channel’s audience.” – UKTV Commissioning Editor Simon Lupton
The one-off hour long comedy focuses on estranged husband and wife Anna (Tate), and John (Miles Jupp), who attempt reconciliation talks after her extra marital affair with a much younger man. With Tate’s character checking into the honeymoon suite, her husband unexpectedly heads to the room a short while later. To add to the confusion, unbeknown to the couple, a 21-year-old man is lying comatose, semi-naked, and asleep in the bathtub, recovering from a rowdy stag do.
What happens next will either make or break their marriage for good. Anna now has to come up with a plan, deal with well-meaning though hapless hotel staff, and try not to rouse the suspicions of her husband, who has been rocked by her previous betrayal.
“This is another new and exciting commission for the Gold schedule in 2016. With a stellar cast delivering a superb script from Aschlin Ditta, Do Not Disturb will provide Gold’s viewers with a must see TV event for the New Year.” – General Manager of Gold, Steve North
Do Not Disturb is part of Gold’s continued commitment to commission original content and will air in 2016.
