Sophie McShera will be starring in a new Russel Tovey sitcom for ITV called, The Job Lot. The show is set in an unemployment office:
Set in a West Midlands job centre, the show will also star Miranda's Sarah Hadland, stand-up Jo Enright (also recently seen in Life’s Too Short), Sophie McShera from Downton Abbey and Tony Maudsley from Benidorm. It is written by Claire Downes, Ian Jarvis and Stuart Lane.
