The third season of Sky1’s comedy series Trollied will premiere on Thursday August 22nd at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Anne Marie O’Connor, Paul Doolan and Ash Atalla, Trollied is based in a budget supermarket in the North West and follows the everyday lives of the store’s staff. The comedy series is produced for Sky1 by Roughcut TV and stars Jane Horrocks, Mark Addy, Jason Watkins, Rita May, Joel Fry, Nick Blood, Chanel Cresswell and Lorraine Cheshire. In the opening episode of the show’s third season, Gavin and Julie are expecting a mad rush for barbecues and beers as it’s the hottest day of the year. What they get instead is a surprise visit from head office, including the new head of strategy, Richard France (Chris Geere). He has big plans for Valco, selecting the Warrington branch as the guinea pig store for his initiative. They say power corrupts and, over on the meat counter, Andy is relishing his role as Head Butcher. Distracted by messy divorce proceedings, Kieran isn’t in the mood and even the promise of a ‘mate date’ with Katie can’t snap him out of it. Neville, meanwhile, tries to work his charm on a couple of customers, before we’re introduced to reclusive fishmonger Ray (Adeel Akhtar) and his hapless charge, Dave (Danny Kirrane).
