Speaking about what attracted him to the series, Tim explained he saw drafts of the scripts from writer Gary Sinyor.
“He showed me some early drafts, and I said, ‘Oh this is funny, maybe you should maybe do this and suggest this and suggest that,’” he recalled.
“And it kind of gradually, very organically kind of became what it is. I mean, it’s very much Gary’s experiences, a lot of those experiences are real experiences that Gary has either actually experienced, which is quite extraordinary itself or indeed, have happened to friends.”
