Bafta-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst (Shameless) and Our Girl's Michelle Keegan returns with this Sky original comedy drama about a group of small-time criminals (including This Is England/ Misfits star Joe Gilgun, who also serves as co-writer) in a fictional northern town. As they get older and their crimes get messier - the attempted robbery of a Shetland pony in episode one doesn't exactly go to plan - some of them start to make plans for life elsewhere.
