What TV’s on at BAFTA in July 2018? Including Hang Ups and Judge Romesh

Hang Ups

Every so often, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

It’s been barely seconds since the previous BAFTA post on TMINE, but here comes another one, since BAFTA just revealed two more events, this time in July. If Hang Ups sounds familiar, BTW, that’s because it’s a remake of Showtime (US)’s Web Therapy.

Hang Ups

TV Preview: Hang Ups

Thursday, 5 July 2018 – 6:45pm
Princess Anne Theatre, 195 Piccadilly, London

A preview of the new Channel 4 comedy followed by a Q+A with co-writer and lead actor Stephen Mangan

Written by Robert Delamere and Stephen Mangan, Hang Ups is an unconventional comedy about an unconventional therapist trying to keep his unconventional life, and patients, from falling apart.

Mangan stars as Dr. Richard Pitt, a therapist who finds himself at a crossroads in life. After the collapse of his previous group therapy practice, Richard develops a new form of therapy – weekly quick-fire sessions with his patients through a webcam. The few patients on his list present a hilarious and outrageous catalogue of neuroses, phobias, issues, anxieties and psychopathies, but even these short sessions, where he’s confronted by everything from the sublime to the ridiculous, are not his greatest challenge… His patience and temperament are stretched to their limit by the daily interruptions of a demanding extended family, errant teenagers and his own trouble-filled past.

The all-star cast includes Richard E. Grant, Jessica Hynes, David Tennant, Arsher Ali, Charles Dance, Katherine Parkinson and Celia Imrie amongst others.
