Bob Servant is back with a new series of the Scottish BAFTA-nominated comedy on BBC One Scotland and BBC Four.
Bob and Frank have thrown themselves into their first love – the burger van business.
Bob confidently predicts that his cheeseburgers will act as an aphrodisiac for the women of Broughty Ferry and matters of the heart soon lead our brave duo astray. When Frank reveals his relationship with his swimming instructor, Dorothy, Bob’s jealousy tests their friendship to breaking point.
It doesn’t help that Bob’s romantic pursuit of Council official Megan manages to land him in court.This new three-part series is due to go out on BBC One Scotland in early December and BBC Four early in 2015.
Brian Cox plays Bob Servant and Jonathan Watson is Frank, his faithful sidekick and “Director of Sauces”. Daniela Nardini plays Megan, a Council Official who is more than a match for Bob, and Anita Vettesse plays Frank’s swimming instructor, and girlfriend, Dorothy. Alex Norton returns as Bob’s nemesis Hendo and Moray Hunter features as down at heel lawyer Objection McNally.
Creator of Bob Servant and writer Neil Forsyth says: “I’m absolutely delighted that Bob, Frank and the rest of Broughty Ferry’s finest are about to be thrust once more upon the nation. Bob’s never been more ambitious, and this time it’s rubbed off on wee Frank. This is a series about love, friendship and the horrific reality of life on a failing cheeseburger van. So, something for everyone”.
