AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set in the world of tabloid journalism and celebrity gossip Lowdown is an eight-part comedy series that focuses on the life of a man whose job it is to feed the public's insatiable appetite for celebrity gossip; a man who'll risk life and limb to secure every scandalous scoop. Based loosely on the experiences of showbiz journalist and columnist (and series co-writer) Adam Zwar, each episode sees showbiz journalist Alex Burchill interview celebrities for his column - some willingly and others not so. Other characters include his friend and Sunday Sun photographer Bob Geraghty; his on-again-off-again girlfriend, Rita Heywood; his inept GP, Dr James; paranoid editor Howard Evans; the no nonsense publicist Hope van der Boom; and his broadsheet nemesis Dylan Hunt.'
