Iain Hollands' first original drama, Beaver Falls, aired on E4. The popular comedy about three British lads working in an American camp was extended to two series. 

Iain's series You, Me and the End of the Apocalypse was produced by Working Title Television and NBC Universal for Sky 1. The high-octane comedy drama saw a group of unlikely characters unite as they face the end of the world, while a comet speeds towards earth, acting as a catalyst for an extraordinary chain of events. 

Iain is currently writing scripts for Kudos, Anonymous Contend, 42, and Fox Searchlight. He is also developing a comedy series Pub Quiz with Big Talk.

    In short then, the plotting is clever, the cast is great, the intrigue works, the jokes land and it looks a treat.

    Luckily Iain Hollands' absurdist take on the end of the world can withstand the hype. Not only is the cast one of the most unusual of the year, a clever meld of British and American talent... But the show itself is happy to take bold tonal risks, swerving between moments of high drama and laugh-out-loud comedy.

    promise of deeply unlikely culture clashes and character combinations – trailers have shown Lowe and Quirke pootling around Slough in a VW Polo – is a delicious one. ****
