Fresh Meat - Format

45 min eps

The perils and joys of house sharing and tutors in those first university years - a painfully amusing drama of self-discovery and errors of judgement, set on the brink of adult life.

Awkward moments and dreaded silences, frequent reinventions, appalling behaviour and, for some, a preoccupation with copulation.

Fresh Meat follows six fresher students, away from home for the first time. From awkward moments and dreaded silences, to frequent reinventions and appalling behaviour they are about to discover who they really are. Melissa - terrified of being boring; Kingsley - a wit but also a virgin; Howard - a misfit with a heart of gold; JP - the worst yet most loyal man in the world; Josie – the eternal student and control freak and Vod – an idealist yet a manipulative bully. How on earth will they cope with student life…?

From acclaimed satirical and comedy writers Bain & Armstrong (Peep Show, Thick of It) comes this  new drama for Channel 4.
