Channel 4's Coming Up series, which gives up-and-coming writers and directors the opportunity to showcase their work on national TV, continues with Northern Ireland writer Stacey Gregg’s Spoof or Die on Monday 30th July at 11.05pm on Channel 4.
Sixteen year old Craig has grown up in Belfast and is obsessed by the city's bloody past - in particular his uncle's part in it. Nicky has just moved to Belfast from England with her mum and little sister, following her parents' divorce.
Together the two play truant from school, both of them eager to impress one another and escape their boredom. As the day progresses, however, their unlikely friendship develops into something far more worrying.
Coming Up is now in its eleventh year, the scheme has launched the careers of some of the most exciting writers and directors in British TV - and is the only UK initiative offering aspiring talent the opportunity to make an authored drama with a full production crew, established actors and a guaranteed network broadcast. Spoof or Die received funding from the Northern Ireland Screen fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
