The GIRLBAND Pilot Trailer is here…
GIRLBAND, winner of the 2013 Sitcom Mission, tells the story of the obsessive fans of a long-forgotten 90’s pop trio, Girlband. JENNY and DEBRA are the last surviving members of the band’s fanclub: ‘Girlband, United, Now and Then’ (GUNT).
As the women celebrate their 900th meeting, they are surprised by the arrival of a new member. GUNT’s newest recruit, CERI, is relocating from Wales with boyfriend GARETH, anticipating a warm welcome and an opportunity to make a fresh start and take her unconventional relationship to the next level.
Meanwhile, JENNY’s mother, CAROL, is having relationship troubles of her own. She’s enlisted the help of DEBRA’s younger brother NEIL to help set up her online dating profile. NEIL is experienced with internet romance, as he dreams of running away with the online girlfriend he has never met, and escaping his overbearing older sister. This is devastating news to JENNY, who has been plucking up the courage to declare her feelings for NEIL for as long as she can remember.
With only Girlband in common, will JENNY, DEBRA and CERI’s shared obsession translate into the friendship the lonely women all yearn for? Will Girlband’s last surviving fanclub… survive?
