The Independent Online
SUNSET & VINE, the independent TV production house, is working on a new sit- com called Losers' Lounge. The 13-part series is destined for London Weekend Television, which gave the world Blind Date and The South Bank Show.

The drama is set in a pub in Esher, Surrey, or somewhere very like it. The patrons are failed and crooked stockbrokers and other ex-City folk who recount tall stories of their old careers. No casting decisions as yet, but the writer Stan Hey, who scripted The Manageress, is to be seen hanging around wine bars in the Square Mile in the hope of gleaning ideas. No word on whether he's made it down to Esher.
