INBETWEENERS star Simon Bird was spotted filming a new Channel 4 comedy series in Northwich last week.

The Inbetweeners star will be joined by a host of other well-known British sitcom actors for the six-part series, Everyone Else Burns, which explores the lives of a hyper-religious community.

Alongside Bird, the series stars Kate O’Flynn, Lolly Adefope, Al Roberts, Amy James-Kelly and Lloyd Griffith among others.

Cast members were spotted in the town on Thursday, with some residents reporting they had spotted film crews outside The Plaza on Friday.

The coming-of-age comedy follows the Mancunian Lewis family and the puritanical Christian sect they are devoted to.

It’s described as a ‘subversive, authentic and comical exploration into what it feels like to balance faith, family and identity in a world that could end tomorrow’.

It is written by Dillon Mapletoft and Oliver Taylor, directed by Nick Collett and co-produced by JAX Media and Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group.

Channel 4 commissioning editor, Laura Riseam, said: “We can’t wait for audiences to enter the pressure cooker of life with the Lewis family as they righteously try and defend the ideology and logic of a life of purity with the vices of the modern world encroaching fast.

“It’s a glorious comedy trap; contemporary, relevant and very funny.”
