Set in Valco, a fictional budget supermarket on the outskirts of Manchester, Trollied takes a comic look at a setting weve all spent too much of our lives in.
Acting deputy manager Julie (Jane Horrocks) struggles to assert her authority and fails at almost every attempt to make a good impression on store manager Gavin (Jason Watkins).
Julie's many weaknesses include a significant lack of people skills, a source of amusement for butcher double-act Andy (Mark Addy) and Kieran (Nick Blood).
Meanwhile, new starter Margaret (Rita May, Coronation Street), a recruit of Valco's older person employment scheme, is a constant source of irritation to Julie and far from a natural on the tills.
Filmed in a purpose-built, fully functional replica supermarket, Trollied is directed by Paul Walker (Shameless), scripted by a team of writers - Julie Rutterford (Shameless), Anne Marie O'Connor (Waterloo Road), Paul Doolan (Man Stroke Woman, Mongrels, Armstrong and Miller), Chris Haywood, Nat Saunders (Smack the Pony & Big Train) - and executive produced by BAFTA Award winner Ash Atalla (The IT Crowd, The Office) for Rough Cut TV.
Check out the first episode of Trollied on Sky1 and Sky1HD on 4 August at 9pm.
