We are making a pilot for a comedy drama series about a group of builders in Tilehurst, Reading. This is your chance to be part of a project which has the intent to be commissioned by a major broadcaster. Our team has a vast amount of credentials and experience.

See brief synopsis for the pilot below:

A film crew are making a documentary about a building firm in Tilehurst, Reading. The firm is owned by Rodney Webb.

His unreliable son Matthew Webb, and his daughter's boyfriend George Harrow both work for the firm. Rod is soon to retire, and wants to pass the firm down to someone deserving in his family.

Brad is a family friend of the Webb’s and is back on the building site since leaving for an office job.

The rest of the firm is built up of local tradies and old friends. They're building an extension for a wealthy family at a house in Pangbourne, Reading.

The story follows the bromance between Matt and Brad. Two friends with different ambitions for life.

The documentary begins with Brad’s first day back on the site in a few years since working a few office jobs.
