GameFace press pack
Roisin Conaty’s self-penned sitcom GameFace, a new 6x30 comedy for E4 which began life as a comedy BLAP, sees Conaty play Marcella, an aspiring actress with a distinct world view who despite being ever optimistic can’t quite get her work, family or love life on track. Alongside Conaty, Pauline McLynn (Father Ted, Shameless) plays Marcella's mum with Francis Magee (Witless, Game of Thrones, Rogue One) as her furious dad and Dylan Edwards (Wasted, Pramface) as wayward brother Billy. Damien Molony (Crashing, Being Human) plays her long-suffering driving instructor Jon, Nina Toussaint-White (Uncle, Emmerdale) and comedian Caroline Ginty play Lucy and Caroline, Marcella's best friends and flat mates, and Dustin Demri Burns (Cardinal Burns, Pyschobitches) is ex-boyfriend Simon.
The series follows Marcella as she tries to make a success of her life and career, and navigate the changing landscape of her 30’s, whilst still recovering from the break-up of a long term relationship. Aided and abetted by her therapist, played by Karl Theobald (Green Wing, Plebs), friends and, unusually, her driving instructor.
This six-part comedy follows Marcella as she spiritedly crashes through life, aided by her dubious life-coach, best friends and ever-patient driving instructor
