Golden Globe winner Brenda Blethyn (Vera, Secrets & Lies) stars as Kate, the owner of a seaside cafe who forms an unexpected and sparky friendship with Koji, an African asylum-seeker, played by Jimmy Akingbola (In the Long Run, Arrow). Although from very different worlds, they are similar in ways which even they do not recognise, including a dogged determination to never back down! When the fur does start to fly, Kate’s funny and resourceful nephew Medium Dave acts as peacemaker.
Dave is played by Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners, A Very British Scandal). Barbara Flynn (The Beiderbecke Tapes, The Durrells) stars as Councillor Bone, Kate’s lifelong arch-enemy. Meera Syal(Goodness Gracious Me, Anita and Me) guest stars as a GP who could get Koji deported.
Kate and Koji is written by Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton, the writers of many award-winning shows, including Drop the Dead Donkey & Outnumbered.
Andy Hamilton (Have I Got News For You, QI, Old Harry’s Game) will himself be the warm-up for these enjoyable and very funny evenings. If you like shows such as Have I Got News For You, Outnumbered, Father Ted, Episodes, Derry Girls, Who’s Line Is It Anyway, Armstrong and Miller & Drop the Dead Donkey, then this is definitely the show for you.
