Tonight (12th June) sees the premiere of a brand new one-off comedy show based in a social work setting.  

“Damned” is the latest instalment of Sky Arts’ popular ‘Playhouse Presents’ series and will be broadcast at 9pm on Sky Arts 1 HD.  



Written by Jo Brand and Morwenna Banks, the programme focuses on the character of Rose, a stressed-out single mother who works in a chaotic social services department.  Starring Jo Brand, Kevin Eldon and Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies; it promises to be a comical look at the characters working within the social work sector. 

Jo Brand has used her own experience as inspiration for the programme; pre-fame she worked as a Mental Health Nurse whilst her mother worked as a social worker. 

Although billed as a one-off special, Sky Arts 1 are known to use their ‘Playhouse Presents’ series to develop full series.
