Book Group, The - Season 1


Fresh and funny, The Book Group is Channel 4's all-new six-part comedy drama from Scottish BAFTA winner, Annie Griffin

Glasgow provides the backdrop for the eclectic group, who meet once a week to discuss what they have read. Claire is the organiser – a young American desperate to meet people in this strange new city. Unfortunately, she gets rather more (or perhaps less) than she bargained for...

Enter three plastic fantastic footballers wives, groomed to within an inch of their pampered lives, and the illiterate football obsessive they attract. Handsome, but wheelchair bound Kenny and a good-looking Phd student called Barney, complete the picture. A number of surprising and sometimes shocking revelations are made as we chart the lives of this odd ensemble. Enormously entertaining, intimate and touching – this comical treat has a huge heart.
