Stephen Mangan in new C4 comedy

Channel 4 Fake News Show Hang Ups Stephen Mangan Stephen Mangan is to write and star in Hang Ups, a new comedy based on the Emmy-nominated series Web Therapy created by Lisa Kudrow, Dan Bucatinsky and Don Roos.

The 6 x 30 is about an unconventional therapist trying to keep his unconventional life from falling apart, as he develops a new form of therapy in which he holds weekly quick-fire sessions with his patients online.

Hang Ups comes from Slam Films, the company run by Mangan, Louise Delamere, Robert Delamere, Robin Davies and Sandeep Mahal.

Mangan, who has written the show with Robert Delamere, said of the project: “People are complex and complicated and they lead messy, knotty lives. We’ve tried to put some of that all-too-familiar turmoil on-screen and the result, I think, is chaotic, glorious and disturbing.”

Kevin Loader and Stephen Mangan executive produce; Louise Delamere produces and Robert Delamere directs. Filming is due to begin later this year.
