Peep Show is a British sitcom starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb. The television programme is written by Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, with additional material by Mitchell and Webb, among others. It was broadcast on Channel 4 from 2003 until 2015. In 2010, it became the longest-running comedy in Channel 4 history in terms of years on air; however, Desmond's still holds the records for most episodes (71 versus Peep Show's 54). Peep Show follows the lives of Mark Corrigan (Mitchell) and Jeremy “Jez” Usborne (Webb). They are two very different, dysfunctional friends who share a flat in Croydon, South London. Mark is a socially awkward and despondent loan manager who works at JLB Credit. He has a cynical outlook on life. Jeremy is an irresponsible juvenile slacker and talentless unemployed musician who lives in Mark's spare room. Stylistically, the show utilises point of view shots—giving the programme its title—with the thoughts of main characters Mark and Jeremy audible as voice-overs. Though it never achieved high viewing figures, the show received consistent critical acclaim and became a cult favourite. In September 2013, Channel 4 announced that the show's ninth series would be its last. Series 9 was filmed throughout August and September 2015 and premiered on 11 November 2015. The final episode aired on 16 December 2015.
Peep Show - Main and recurring cast - Netflix
David Mitchell as Mark Corrigan, a loan manager at the fictional company, JLB Credit. Responsible, but also socially awkward and despondent, as well as chronically sexually confused, Mark is the owner of the flat on the outskirts of Croydon, South London that he shares with his best friend from university, Jeremy. Robert Webb as Jeremy “Jez” Usborne, a bisexual, unemployed aspiring musician and a “work-shy freeloader” who lives in the spare room of Mark's flat. He is cowardly, juvenile, and quite arrogant, also considering himself to be immensely talented and attractive. However, Jeremy is more socially skilled and successful than Mark. Matt King as Super Hans, Jeremy's bandmate and friend, and an untrustworthy fantasist who regularly uses recreational drugs. It is revealed in the second episode of the ninth series, that his real name is Simon. Olivia Colman as Sophie Chapman, a relatively scruffy and unstable co-worker at JLB, and serves as a love interest for Mark (and occasionally Jeremy) throughout much of the series. She and Mark eventually marry but divorce shortly afterwards, and she later gives birth to his child. Paterson Joseph as Alan Johnson, a senior loan manager at JLB and Mark's boss for much of the series. He is dapper, confident, mincing, and maintains a particularly reckless approach to business and life. Neil Fitzmaurice as Jeff Heaney, a colleague and nemesis of Mark's at JLB Credit. The two frequently clash over the affections of Sophie, with Jeff's manly, intimidating behaviour serving as a foil to Mark's more mild-mannered persona. Isy Suttie as Dobby, an I.T. worker at JLB Credit and a self-confessed misfit, much like Mark, who quickly develops strong feelings for her. Despite an at-times uneasy relationship, by the end of the seventh series, Mark invites her to move in with him. Series 8 ends with Dobby leaving to go to New York City. Jim Howick as Gerrard Matthew, Mark's sickly coworker and sometimes-friend at JLB credit, and later, his rival for Dobby's affections. Sophie Winkleman as Big Suze, Jeremy's ex-girlfriend and frequent romantic interest. She is attractive but naïve, and described by Mark as a “mental posho.” Eliza L. Bennett as Sarah Corrigan, Mark's sister and a solicitor who has assisted Mark in his divorce settlement. Throughout the series, she also engages in recurring romantic escapades with Jeremy, often contrary to his intentions.
