Britain’s worst letting agent Stath will once again be unleashed on the London property market, as writer-performer and rising star Jamie Demetriou's (Fleabag, Paddington 2) Stath Lets Flats is recommissioned by Channel 4 for a brand new 6 x 30 series.
The hopeless Greek-Cypriot lettings agent will face his biggest challenge yet at the family business Michael & Eagle Lettings.
Having been denied the manager’s position by his own father, Vasos (Christos Stergioglou), Stath (Jamie Demetriou) - along with Carole (Katy Wix) and the rest of the team - is forced to work under his arch rival Julian (Dustin Demri-Burns) - and re-think his life goals. His sister Sophie (Natasia Demetriou) is also searching for a new direction after failing at Dance College and publicly denying her feelings for Al (Alistair Roberts).
Stath Lets Flats has been nominated for Best Comedy Programme at the 2019 Broadcast Awards.
Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4, says: “We did originally say no to this, but he just kept turning up, trying to get into the building. Sometimes it’s just easier to give in isn’t it? In all seriousness, we’re thrilled to back Jamie and this gem of a show again.”
Ash Atalla, Managing Director, Roughcut TV, adds: “So happy to be going again on Stath Lets Flats. Jamie is a star. And we’ve all felt the pain of terrible flat viewings, so this is our revenge."
Jamie Demetriou commented: “Lovely to have been given a series 2, mate. Thank you Channel 4 for the ongoing support and faith, and thank you everyone who worked on it. I would formally like to announce that series 2 MIGHT be about Stath and Peter Andre trying to make it in Miami.”
