News: Roisin Conaty's GameFace Comes To E4

Roisin Conaty’s self-penned sitcom GameFace, a new six-part comedy for E4, is due to start later this year. The series began life as a short comedy BLAP and sees Conaty play Marcella, an aspiring actress with a distinct world view who despite being ever optimistic can’t quite get her work, family or love life on track. The series follows Marcella as she tries to make a success of her life and career, and navigate the changing landscape of her thirties, while still recovering from the break-up of a long term relationship. She is aided and abetted by her therapist, played by Karl Theobald (Green Wing, Plebs), friends and, unusually, her driving instructor.

Pauline McLynn (Father Ted, Shameless) plays Marcella's mum with Francis Magee (Witless, Game of Thrones, Rogue One) as her furious dad and Dylan Edwards (Wasted, Pramface) as wayward brother Billy. Damien Molony (Crashing, Being Human) plays her long-suffering driving instructor Jon, Nina Toussaint-White (Uncle, Emmerdale) and comedian Caroline Ginty play Lucy and Caroline, Marcella's best friends and flatmates, and Dustin Demri Burns (Cardinal Burns, Pyschobitches) is ex-boyfriend Simon.
