E4’s new comedy series GameFace will premiere on Thursday October 12th at 9pm with a double-bill, it has been announced.
GameFace follows Marcella as she spiritedly crashes her way through life, assisted by her dubious life-coach, best friends and ever-patient driving instructor. Bouncing back from a seismic break-up, clinging on to her dreams of becoming an actress, and – when she remembers her lessons – finally learning to drive, Marcella is on a mission to change her future for the better.
The comedy series was created by Roisin Conaty and originally began its life as part of Channel 4’s 4Funnies strand before being picked up for a full series on E4 in October 2015. It is being produced by Objective Fiction and stars Roisin Conaty (Life on the Road, Live at the Apollo), Pauline McLynn (Father Ted, Shameless), Francis Magee (Witless, Game of Thrones, Rogue One), Dylan Edwards (Wasted, Pramface), Damien Molony (Crashing, Being Human), Nina Toussaint-White (Uncle, Emmerdale), Karl Theobald (Green Wing, Plebs), Dustin Demri Burns (Cardinal Burns, Psychobitches) and comedian Caroline Ginty.
