Timewasters is a comedy about a struggling four-piece South London jazz band who travel back in time to the 1920's via a urine-sodden lift in a dilapidated block of flats.
Stuck in the past after their time machine' is destroyed, our gang decide to explore, before quickly discovering that being young and black in the Jazz Age is a lot less genteel and a lot more shady than Downton Abbey had led them to believe.
Aided and abetted by a pair of oddball twins and some 1920s luminaries, the band are forced to navigate the parties and pitfalls of the Roaring Twenties while searching for a way back home. All the while, not missing the opportunity to introduce the Bright Young Things to some of the twenty-first century's finest tunes.
The second series of award-winning time-travelling comedy Timewasters will start shooting from next week with the series due to air on ITV2 in 2019. The band are back for another spin through time in series two.
In a 1950’s world of budding pop sensations, our band start a jazz club, Nick desperate to rival those in the swinging heart of Soho by booking jazz legends of the day. Jason discovers that his one true love from the 1920’s, Victoria, is alive and well and now has a thirty-two-year-old son – Jason Junior! Is it finally time for Jason to grow up and become a Dad? Lauren is on a roll with more get-rich-quick schemes but finds herself developing feelings for stiff upper lipped soldier Jason Junior. And can Nick save the future of Jazz when Horace inadvertently introduces garage music to a young Ronnie Scott who decides MC Horace is now the one to follow?
But in an atmosphere of post-war Cold War paranoia our gang wonder if their time-travelling antics will be spotted - someone seems to be on their tail. With their typical mix of brazen opportunism and massive incompetence, they’re going to have to work much harder this time round to keep their adventures on the down-low. It’s not until our gang accidentally start the Notting Hill Riots that they realise it might be time to get home – but can they?
