Diana Vickers will made her TV acting debut in new Comedy Central series Give Out Girls.
The 6-part series is due to air this autumn and will see Vickers starring alongside Kerry Howard (Him & Her), Cariad Lloyd (Cardinal Burns), Ben Bailey Smith, Tracy-Ann Oberman (Friday Night Dinner), Miranda Hennessy (Pramface) and Alex Carter (Hollyoaks). The show comes from the producer of Him & Her, The Wedding and Rev.
Give Out Girls is a sitcom about the stories and secrets of a gang of four girls, two guys and their boss who work in the world of promotions.
The lovable team is headed up by the quite unlovable Debbie, (Tracy-Ann Oberman); pretentious, narrow minded and a nightmare boss. Marilyn (Kerry Howard) is the linchpin of the group, rapidly nearing 30 and getting a bit old for this game. Gemma (Diana Vickers) is young, eager and not yet jaded like the rest of the bunch although her constant upbeat positivity sometimes makes the others just want to club her to death with a mini bottle of shampoo. Fellow promo girls include Zoe (Miranda Hennessy) a passive-aggressive, self-loving dancer from New Zealand and Poppy (Cariad Lloyd) who has her own unique way of looking at the world; she loves booze, partying and boys, in no particular order.
Give Out Girls was written by Tony MacMurray and Hatty Ashdown.
