A new comedy series is coming to Sky One.

If you’re a fan of The Young Offenders, Brassic is going to be right up your street.

Starring a stellar lineup that includes Michelle Keegan (Coronation Street), Joe Gilgun (This is England) and Damien Molony (Ripper Street), to name a few, Brassic is going to be your summer 2019 binge watch.

Based on a group of working-class friends on the brink of adulthood in northern suburbia, the show follows the lads and lady as they scam and bribe their way out of almost anything. However, as they’re getting older and their small town is all they know, could it be the end of an era for the gang if one of them chooses to leave for pastures new?

A hilarious comedy with heartfelt emotion, Brassic is all about loyalty, growing up and the lengths you’d go to for your friends.

Damien Molony, who plays Dylan in the show, discussed how he’d describe his character today at Sky’s 2019 content event in Dublin.

“Dylan is the brains of the gang so he’s kind-of smart enough to see the flaws in all their crazy money-making schemes. And you know, the great tragedy for Dylan really is because he is the brightest of the bunch, he doesn’t really have any ambition to do anything with his intelligence”.

Damien stars closely alongside Michelle Keegan, who plays Erin in this series, revealing that they had to film a sex scene on their very first day. Damien agreed that it’s never easy to act that out even when it’s alongside Michelle Keegan (who he also noted has an infectious laugh).
