The trailer offers a great look at the 6-part show which is scheduled to air in 2017 (no exact date yet). Here’s Sky Vision‘s official synopsis:
Rupert Grint (Harry Potter movies), Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) and Golden Globe award-winning actor Don Johnson (Miami Vice) star in this brand new comedy for Sky Atlantic. Directed by BAFTA winner Matt Lipsey (Little Britain, Psychoville), this series is produced by King Bert, the production company founded by Jo Sargent (French and Saunders, Absolutely Fabulous) and writer-performers David Walliams and Miranda Hart. It’s the laugh-out-loud story of Daniel Glass (Grint), a compulsive liar who is stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job in which he is under the thumb of his irrepressible boss Kenny West (Johnson). Then, just when he thinks things couldn’t get any worse, he’s diagnosed with esophageal cancer. However, when his diagnosis encourages those around him to treat him differently, he finds a new lust for life. When it becomes apparent that he was misdiagnosed by Dr Glennis (Frost), one of the most incompetent oncologists on Earth, he must choose whether to come clean and return to his old rubbish life or to go on pretending to be ill. He plumps for the latter, but quickly finds that he and Dr Glennis are forced to spend every waking minute trying to stop the truth from getting out. Written by James Serafinowicz (The Mark Steel Lectures) and Nat Saunders (Trollied, Cardinal Burns), this is the story of a desperate man’s lie that quickly spirals out of control.
We’re beyond excited to see Rupert in Sick Note!
