David Tennant to star in This Is Jinsy for Sky Atlantic
Sky Atlantic HD has announced a host of guest stars that will make appearances across its first original comedy commission, This Is Jinsy. Directed by Matt Lipsey (Psychoville, Little Britain), This Is Jinsy is an eccentric eight-part comedy written by and starring newcomers Chris Bran and Justin Chubb.
David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Simon Callow, Harry Hill and Jennifer Saunders are among those named as guest stars so far.
This Is Jinsy follows Arbiter Maven (Chubb) and Operative Sporall (Bran) as they keep a close eye on the 791 residents of Jinsy from the Great Tower in the parish of Veen. Life on the island is rather Orwellian: each colourful member of the community is monitored by a surveillance system of tessellators, from local folk dribbler Melody Lane to weather monk Tracee Henge.
