Cast announced for Nick Frost's Mr Sloane


As part of Sky’s continuing investment in original content, Sky Atlantic HD today (12 April 2013) announces a further five cast members joining Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul) in MR SLOANE, an original new comedy created by Emmy® award-winning director and producer Robert B. Weide (Curb Your Enthusiasm).

Created by and starring some of the finest talent from both on and off screen, bittersweet romantic comedy MR SLOANE’s titular character, played by Nick Frost, is a buttoned-down 1960’s man in crisis.

RTS® Award winning and BAFTA® nominated actress Olivia Colman (Rev, Broadchurch) will play Mr Sloane’s estranged wife Janet. Regularly appearing to him in flashbacks and fantasies, Janet remains a significant ‘other’ in Mr Sloane’s life.

Exciting and fast rising young actress Ophelia Lovibond (No Strings Attached) joins the cast as Robin, a free-spirited young American and prospective new love interest for Mr Sloane, following a chance encounter in his local ironmongers.

BAFTA® nominated actor, writer and comedy king of Twitter Peter Serafinowicz (The Peter Serafinowicz Show) will play Ross, one of Mr Sloane’s three childhood friends whom he meets every night in his local. Lawry Lewin (Horrible Histories) will play Beans, Mr Sloane’s close friend who still lives at home with his mother and Brendan Patricks will play Reggie, the ladies’ man of the group.

MR SLOANE is the latest commission from Sky Atlantic HD following Sky’s commitment to increase its investment in original British content by 50% over the next three years. By 2014, Sky expects to invest £600 million a year in British programmes across its portfolio of channels. Sky Atlantic HD is to be a major part of that charge by commissioning bold, authored pieces with strong narrative stories.
