Jamie Salisbury boards new CBBC drama

Live-action series from in-house comedy team

Jamie Salisbury (JoJo and Gran Gran) is to score forthcoming CBBC series "Lagging".

Penned by BAFTA award-winning writer Dan Berlinka, the comedy series follows Sol, Moi, Cedric and Leah - a group of 11 year-old gamers - and best friends in real life and online.

When gaming, their huge personality differences are an asset, as they face quests and conquer worlds as a team. But as four very different friends, surviving the challenging missions of real life is a much more difficult game.

Lagging is an in-house CBBC production. Connal Orton is Executive Producer, Gert Thomas produces and Julian Kemp and Teresa Varga direct.
