What is Stuck about?

The official BBC Two synopsis explains that “Dan and Carla are at a crossroads. Dan has been recently made redundant, while Carla is wondering whether this is all she can expect from life.”

“Add their age gap to the mix, and the re-emergence onto the scene of Carla’s ex-girlfriend Maya, and it’s no wonder that they’re feeling stuck.”

Dylan Moran plays Dan, one half of the central couple, feeling listless after recently losing his job. Moran is best known for appearing in (and writing) the sitcom Black Books, as well as for appearing alongside Simon Pegg in Shaun of the Dead and Run Fatboy Run. He can next be seen in Netflix fantasy prequel The Witcher: Blood Origin as Uthrok One-Nut.

Morgana Robinson plays Carla, who works in a wellness centre. Robinson is best known as an impressionist and writer, having produced several iterations of her own sketch show, and recently competed as a Taskmaster contestant. More recently, you might have seen her in the Gold sitcom Newark Newark alongside Nathan Foad and Matthew Horne.

Eleanor Fanyinka plays Maya, Carla’s ex-girlfriend. You might recognise her from Holby City or Shakespeare and Hathaway, though more recently Fanyinka appeared in Netflix’s The Sandman alongside Jenna Coleman.

They’re joined by Juliet Cowan (Back to Life) as Joy, Neil Maskell (Peaky Blinders) as Dr Pete Cosmos, San Shella (Sherlock) as Mickey, and Clemens Schick (Kidnapping Stella) as Kurt amongst others.

Who writes and directs Stuck?

Dylan Moran has written all five episodes of Stuck, noting that the series initially started life as a series of sketches. As a writer, Moran is probably best known for Black Books and Little Crackers.

The series was directed by Ian FitzGibbon. Fitzgibbon is a prolific comedy director, and has previously worked on the Caitlin Moran comedy Raised by Wolves (not the Ridley Scott sci-fi drama) and Chris O’Dowd’s Moone Boy. More recently, FitzGibbon directed episodes of the Channel 4 comedy Hullraisers earlier this year.
