December 22, 2008

Curtis Brown clients have a great Christmas television schedule coming up. Highlights include.....

Caught in a Trap by James Graham. This one-off drama transmits on ITV1 at 9pm on Boxing day 2008. It stars Connie Fisher as the shy Gemma, who works collecting money from parking meters and is obsessed with Elvis. She still lives at home with her overbearing stepmother (Geraldine James) and her quiet father (Jim Carter) and is seemingly oblivious to the attentions of her friend and neighbour Marcus (Joe Absolom).

Director Christine Gernon and the Gavin & Stacey cast regroup for a cracker of a Christmas special. It's Christmas Eve and the Wests join the Shipmans for one of Mick's famous turkey dinners. Catch the Gavin & Stacey Christmas Special on BBC 1at 10pm on Christmas eve. BBC3 will also be giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show in Gavin & Stacey - The 12 Days of Christmas on Christmas Day at 11.30pm. This documentary features footage from on and off the set, from the read-through to the wrap, and shows viewers all the fun that happened along the way.

Crooked House
, directed by Damon Thomas begins Monday, December 22 at 10.30pm on BBC Four. When young heir to the estate Felix de Momery (Ian Hallard) announces his engagement to his sweetheart, Ruth (Jennifer Higham), his grandmother seems uneasy about the match. Is her disapproval really a case of snobbery, as Ruth believes, or does the old lady have a more chilling reason to fear the prospect of a wedding at Geap Manor? Fully shot in high definition, the cast includes Julian Rhind-Tutt (Green Wing), Mark Gatiss, Philip Jackson (Margaret Thatcher: The Long Walk To Finchley), Lee Ingleby (George Gently), Jean Marsh (Sense And Sensibility), Samuel Barnett (Beautiful People), Daniela Denby-Ashe (My Family), Anna Madeley (Brideshead Revisited) and, in his debut dramatic role, illusionist Derren Brown.
