Airing now on Channel 4, Hang Ups shot by Oli Russell and directed by Robert Delamere.

Scripted by Delamere and Stephen Mangan, this is in part inspired by Lisa Kudrow’s Web Therapy. Kudrow utilised known actors such as Courtney Cox, Lily Tomlin, Alan Cumming, Rashida Jones,Steve Carell & Rosie O’Donnell, with Hang Ups borrowing a similar motif featuring guest and continuing appearances from Richard E Grant, Sarah Hadland, Jessica Hynes and Katherine Parkinson as Mangan’s wife… Mangan stars as the online therapist, supervised in turn by Alice Lowe.

The Guardian: “Mangan stars in a remake of Lisa Kudrow’s Web Therapy and manages the rarest of TV feats: a UK adaptation that’s every bit as good as the US original”

The Telegraph: “real therapists will roll their eyes but this comedy is a wonderfully ribald treat”

Hang Ups utilises a multi format multi camera set up and was shot on location in London.

Oli is about to wrap the Netflix Original series Sex Education, before returning to shoot the second series of one of the most critically well received shows from last year.
