BARRED!

 

BARRED! is a TV comedy about pub life based in London. It portrays
the life behind the bar as well as the customer’s day-to-day. It
exaggerates the situations and problems that bar managers,
supervisors and staff handle on a daily basis. From the bartender
who’s been there for years to the many staff members that come and
go. It also exaggerates all types of customers and regulars who
interact with this local pub based in Shoreditch.

The characters:

BAR OWNER CALEB
A fat tall white man who wears suspenders. He’s explosive and has grey/ white hair (Earl Hafler looking)

BAR MANAGER TOM
A white English guy who is constantly stressed and overwhelmed by work, he is a good lad and polite and somewhat sarcastic. He loves beer and knows about beer a little too much.

SUPERVISOR SYDNEY

BARTENDER ASH

OPS DAVID
Operation manager David is a slim young guy, mid-20s who is very proper about everything he does at work. He is highly educated and caring towards staff and general health of the bar chain.

His hidden life, however, leaves clues in his body and part of the staff’s fun is to figure him out.
