Mr. Sloane is a British period comedy-drama television series written by Robert B. Weide, Aschlin Ditta and Oliver Lansley which follows a buttoned-down 1960s man undergoing a crisis in his life, but with hope on the horizon in various forms.
The series begins its story in 1969 where Jeremy Sloane is at the end of his rope - literally. He's been fired from his accounting job and his wife Janet has left him to "find herself." Despair is setting in. Most evenings are now spent at the local pub, drowning his sorrows with childhood friends.
Between his failed attempts at marriage, career success and even suicide, it's fair to say that 1969 isn't shaping up to be Watford-dweller Mr. Sloane's year.
But with a potential job opportunity on the horizon and the phone number of a prospective new love interest following a chance encounter in his local hardware store, could Mr. Sloane's luck be about to change?
Olivia Colman plays Mr. Sloane's estranged wife Janet; Ophelia Lovibond joins the cast as Robin, a free-spirited young American and prospective new love interest for Mr. Sloane; Peter Serafinowicz plays Ross, one of Mr. Sloane's three childhood friends whom he meets every night in his local; and Brendan Patricks plays Reggie, the ladies' man of the friendship group.
Mr. Sloane is a Whyaduck/Big Talk Production.
Mr. Sloane premiered in South Africa on BBC Entertainment with a double bill on Tuesday 21 July 2015, at 21h40. Thereafter new episodes broadcast weekly.
