"Funny and painfully accurate" **** Time Out
From the award-winning creators of Peep Show, Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, and starring Jack Whitehall, Joe Thomas and Robert Webb, Fresh Meat is released on DVD on 8th October 2012 from Channel 4 DVD.
Channel 4's award winning comedy-drama about the hilarious and painful truths of being a student is being released on DVD for the first time. Winner of a British Comedy Award for Best New Comedy and two RTS Television Awards for Best Scripted Comedy and Best Writer - Comedy. Fresh Meat is created by Peep Show writers Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, Fresh Meat follows a group of six students embarking upon the most exciting period of their lives so far: university!
Fresh Meat focuses on an assorted bunch of fresher's when their new university accommodation office places them together in a shared house. There's JP (Jack Whitehall), a public school boy with good teeth and an inflated sense of entitlement; Kingsley (Joe Thomas, The Inbetweeners), charming and crushingly insecure; Josie (Kimberley Nixon, Cranford), determined to experience 'new things'; socially-awkward know-it-all Howard (Greg McHugh, Gary: Tank Commander); hard-living Vod (Zawe Ashton, Case Histories); and Oregon (Charlotte Ritchie), desperate to be cool and terrified of being boring.
The laugh-out-loud comedy focuses on the experiences of this group as they each struggle to find a place for themselves in their new university environment. There are many surprises along the way... To his considerable bemusement, Kingsley manages to pull on his first night, but to his dismay finds the object of his attention is in fact recruiting for the Christian Union. Oregon wastes no time locking horns with her lecturer, Professor Shales (Tony Gardner), at her first English tutorial. And Josie ends up in bed with JP - a random encounter after which, to her horror, she realises he is in fact there to stay. Still, at least Howard is able to relinquish his outcast status - an accolade now awarded to the mysterious seventh housemate, Paul Lamb - "the invisible man"...
Away from home for the first time, on the brink of their adult lives, these six students see their lives collide, overlap and run the whole gamut of appalling behaviour and terrible errors of judgement familiar to anyone who's ever experienced this rite of passage for themselves.
