    ZEPPOTRON SCORES ROB BECKETT FRONTED SITCOM PILOT

    Zeppotron, part of Endemol Shine Group today announced that BBC ONE has commissioned them to make Static, a pilot written by and starring Rob Beckett.

    Confirmed casting for Static includes Rob Beckett, Alison Steadman, Phil Davis and Craig Parkinson.

    Static is a sitcom all about twenty-something Rob, who jacks in a job in London to move back in with his parents in their southeast London family home, only to discover they've just sold the house and moved to a static caravan park in Margate.

    Not only is Rob now jobless, but he's now having to live on a sofabed in his parents' caravan in a holiday park eighty miles from London whilst he figures out his next move.

    It seems like a disaster to begin with, but his mum is delighted to have someone to cook for, and his dad's figured out how to get thousands of football channels on the telly. Before long, Rob is getting used to being with mum and dad again, and through them he's quickly drawn into the world of the park, not to mention the extraordinary characters within it.

    The question is – how quickly can Rob get back on his feet and back to London? And, as time goes on - how much does he really want to?

    Rob Beckett says 'I always want to stretch myself as a writer and a performer and challenge myself to tackle different issues and genres. However, that’s really hard work. So what I've done is knock up a sitcom about a working class bloke from London called Rob who has to move back in with his parents who are coincidentally exactly the same as mine in real life. The only difference is their names which I’ve had to change in the show so my real parents don't sue me for royalties.'
