Combine a gang of four twenty-something wasters, one West Country village and Sean Bean and you’ve got Wasted. E4’s hilarious new comedy series, (6x30’), from triple BAFTA Award winning writing team James Lamont and Jon Foster (Cuckoo, Paddington, Amazing World of Gumball.) Lovable fantasy fanatic Morpheus, (Danny Kirrane- Trollied), manages a bong shop, (Stoned Henge) with his neurotic sister Sarah (Rose Reynolds-The World’s End). His secret crush is their mate Alison (Gwyneth Keyworth- Game of Thrones), the quirky girl who runs a tattoo business out the back of the shop, and his cocky best friend Kent (Dylan Edwards-The Job Lot) sleeps on the sofa, rent free. Together they’ve been living in each other’s pockets since school and aren’t moving anywhere fast. But Morpheus is a dreamer, and his dreams take the form of his hero Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), who appears in full medieval garb, as Morpheus' personal spirit guide, to help him navigate the rough seas of wasting your twenties…
