Zapped S1E1 | Howell, Barbara And Brian Search For The Amulet | Dave
Zapped - Brand new to Dave from Thursday 13th October, 9.40pm and catch-up on UKTV Play - http://uktvplay.co.uk
Zapped is a brand new fantasy comedy starring James Buckley (The Inbetweeners), Paul Kaye (Game Of Thrones), Sharon Rooney (My Mad Fat Diary), Ken Collard (Cuckoo) and Louis Emerick (Benidorm). Steve Coogan also makes a guest appearance as well as executive producing the show.
Brian Weaver (Buckley), an online data marketing assistant (even he doesn't know what that is), finds himself abruptly transported to a parallel world, a place of bizarre creatures, magical forces and psychopathic fairies.
Brian lands in the dead-end town of Munty. Fortunately, there's a pub – The Jug & Other Jug - where he meets the owner, Herman (a former warrior played by Emerick) plus a handful of regulars: Barbara (a hopeless soothsayer; Sharon Rooney), Steg (an armchair revolutionary; Ken Collard) and Howell (a brain-fried Wizard; Paul Kaye). Brian is desperate to get home, and his new acquaintances are almost as clueless as he is. Instead, he finds himself being sucked into a world he doesn't understand, ruled by the tyrannical Protector. It's even worse than being an online data marketing assistant.
In the opening episode, having accidently been transported to Munty by a magical amulet before he can used it to get home, Howell sells it to the local criminal mastermind, Slasher Morgan. In an attempt to secure both the money and the amulet, Brian persuades Howell to pursue an ingenious plan. It’s risky – especially as crossing Slasher Morgan usually involves eye-watering pain – but Brian has nothing to lose. Except the amulet obviously.
