City to feature in TV comedy

THE team are riding high in the Premiership and their manager is rarely out of the headlines - it's safe to say Manchester City's showbiz currency has never been higher.

So it's perhaps little surprise that ITV appear to be jumping on the Blues bandwagon - and are looking at screening a new comedy series based around the lives of a group of City fans.

The new comedy has been filmed on location across the region, and follows the lives of a group of City fans who have moved away from Manchester but all travel up to the matches every weekend on the train.

The comedy, called `Til We Die, stars Phoenix Nights' Steve Edge and former Coronation Street favourite Sally Lindsay in the lead roles as husband and wife footie fans.


vote it up!

We really attract them on here don't we?

No problem with a comedy about City at all. Anyone remember 'The Dustbin Men' with Winston, Cheese 'n Egg & Heavy Breathin' ? Think the dustbin van was called 'Challenger'

Go for it ITV - you might make me laugh, and God knows we need a few of those after last season!

Was this comedy inspired by Saturday's game by any chance?

(Sorry, but someone had to..)

Soccershoutphil beat me to it - Red Mancs at work are saying the comedy's all about the 6-0 Chelsea game...it was just a blip, wasn't it?

Sally Lindsay - one of the girls of my dreams. Pity they couldn't have got Susan Bookbinder in there as well!
