Check out this fab promotional image of David Tennant in character for the new Channel 4 sitcom, Hang Ups.

Hang Ups, is a new six part comedy series, which has just wrapped filming and is due to air on the channel in 2018.

Written by Robert Delamere and Stephen Mangan, who also stars, Hang Ups is an unconventional comedy about an unconventional therapist trying to keep his unconventional life, and patients, from falling apart.

Stephen stars as Dr. Richard Pitt, a therapist with a chequered professional career, who finds himself at a crossroads in life – a crossroads precipitated by the startling realisation that his life appears to be falling apart at the seams….

After the collapse of his previous group therapy practice, Richard is no longer able to conduct the traditional 50-minute sessions most therapists have with their patients. Instead, he’s developed a new form of therapy –weekly quick-fire sessions with his patients which take place online, through a webcam. The few patients on his list present a hilarious and outrageous catalogue of neuroses, phobias, issues, anxieties and psychopathies, but even these short sessions, where he’s confronted by everything from the sublime to the ridiculous, are not his greatest challenge... His patience and temperament are stretched to their limit by the daily interruptions of a demanding extended family, errant teenagers and his own trouble-filled past...

An all star cast of clients and associates will include David Tennant, Richard E. Grant, Jessica Hynes, Katherine Parkinson, Karl Theobald, Arsher Ali, Celia Imrie and Paul Ritter.

Also confirmed to appear are Charles Dance, Tolu Ogunmefun, Monica Dolan, Sarah Hadland, Conleth Hill, Lolly Adefope, John Macmillan and Harry Lloyd.

Hang Ups is a farcical, dark and perceptive comedy about a man trying to help other people keep their shit together while his own inexorably falls apart. Heavily improvised, each of Richard Pitt’s therapy sessions are startling, unpredictable, discomfiting and hilarious.

Stephen Mangan says: “People are complex and complicated and they lead messy, knotty lives. We’ve tried to put some of that all-too-familiar turmoil onscreen and the result, I think, is chaotic, glorious and disturbing.”

The series is commissioned by Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4. Rachel Springett is Commissioning Editor for Channel 4. The series will be produced by Slam Films. Kevin Loader and Stephen Mangan will serve as Executive Producers, Producer is Louise Delamere and the Director is Robert Delamere.
