David Tennant to appear in This Is Jinsy
David Tennant will be appearing as a guest in an episode of the new series of the Sky television programme This Is Jinsy. The pilot was originally made for BBC Three but declined to commission a series so Sky instead snapped it up.
This Is Jinsy is described as:
“A surreal sitcom set on Jinsy, an island whose 762 residents are monitored by 1,067 tessellators. These tessellators include video cameras for surveillance as well as little screens to allow the residents to watch important island events, such as the tri-annual island cow wash (live from Glotters field). They also include a handy slot for paying fines, and a sphincter nozzle for product and pill downloads. Arbiter Maven (the 17th Arbiter and 'Wearer of the Hat') is assisted by Operative Sporall (nice hair and 'Wearer of the Beige Suit'). From the Great Tower in the parish of Veen, they observe video feeds from the tessellators and keep a watchful eye on the residents.”
The eight part series is directed by Matt Lipsey and will air on Sky's new channel Sky Atlantic HD in the summer. Chris Bran and Justin Chubb write and star in the series.
David Tennant has already recorded his one episode of the series which is listed in his CV for Much Ado About Nothing.
