About the Show

PhoneShop is a British sitcom created, written, produced and directed by Phil Bowker and set in a mobile phone shop in Sutton, London which follows a graduate named Christopher who goes through a one-day trial and a subsequent employment who finds himself tossed into the snakepit of cut-throat sales targets and dog-eat-dog backstabbing.

The high street is a dangerous battle zone. On the frontline are the brave soldiers of the PhoneShop sales floor. On the mean, cut-throat UK high street, the priority is to "shift units, make money, smash targets..." and no one knows that better than the staff of PhoneShop.

But with top salesman Little Gary Patel back in jail, the staff's position as "Kings of the High Street" may be in jeopardy for the first time.

Manager Lance has a secret weapon in the form of new recruit and graduate Christopher. But Lance's young protégée looks more damp squib than battle-ready expert. It's up to Ashley, Jerwayne and Janine - the elite Sales Professionals – to knock this eager-to-please, bag of nerves into shape.

Together it's their job to make sure that every mug punter within five square miles gets locked down to the tightest and most expensive mobile phone contract known to mankind.

PhoneShop was written, directed and produced by Phil Bowker (Pulling, Sean Lock's 15 Storeys High) with additional material written by Jon Macqueen and the cast.

The show features an ensemble core cast including Tom Bennett (Pulling, Eastenders), Andrew Brooke (Pulling, Cemetery Junction), Emma Fryer (Home Time, Ideal), Javone Prince (Horrible Histories) and Martin Trenaman (The Inbetweeners) with cameo support from Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker, Facejacker).

The series was first broadcast in the UK on Channel 4 as a television pilot on 13 November 2009, as part of the channel's Comedy Showcase season of comedy pilots, and the subsequent series premiered on E4 on 7 October, 2010.
