Meet the cast of Boiling Point TV series
Vinette Robinson and Stephen Graham reprise their roles from the critically acclaimed film, but who else stars?
It's not often a film does so incredibly well that a spin-off TV series is soon commissioned after the credits roll - but that's exactly what's happened in the case of Boiling Point.
Arguably one of the most anticipated dramas of the year, the series follows on from the film, fast-forwarding just eight months after Andy Jones's (Stephen Graham) surprise heart attack at the end of the feature film.
The new four-parter follows Carly (Vinette Robinson) as the new head chef of Point North, but will she be able to cultivate a calmer working environment than her former boss and friend, Andy?
As well as Graham and Robinson reprising their roles as Andy and Carly, a lot of the movie's cast is set to return, as well as some brand new characters.
The series takes on more of an in-depth focus of some of the characters, with the synopsis promising episodes that will follow "the team as the stresses of keeping the restaurant running bear down on them amidst a hospitality industry in crisis".
