SKY Atlantic Previews New Nick Frost Comedy ‘Mr. Sloane’

Mr. Sloane starring Nick Frost and Olivia Coleman and written and directed by Emmy Award winning Curb Your Enthusiasm producer and director Robert B Weide.

It centres on a buttoned-down 1960s man in crisis. Between his failed attempts at marriage, career success, and even suicide, it’s fair to say that 1969 isn’t shaping up to be Watford-dweller Mr. Sloane’s year. But with a potential job opportunity on the horizon and the phone number of a prospective new love interest, could his luck be about to change?

Nick Frost commented: “Original and off-beat, I loved Bob’s idea for Mr Sloane and fell in love with this character straight away so I’m chuffed to be a part of the project”

Ophelia Lovibond, Peter Serafinowicz and Lawry Lewin also star.

For a bigger look, you can also see the very first scene of the show above!
