About the Show

Summary of Plot

A DJ on a hip radio station Skin FM. Urbane and witty on air, off-air he’s a shambles, as inept in love as he is trying to be cool. Along for the ride are his perennially partying co-host Dom (Kevin Bishop), a man with a short attention span and a secret boy-band past, and his fierce but romantically hapless producer Jane (Nina Sosanya) whose efforts to keep the boys out of trouble usually land her in it. – iMDB
