Still Up looks set to be one of the best comedies of the year.
Apple TV+ shared the official trailer for the new comedy series starring Antonia Thomas and Craig Roberts.
Still Up is an almost romantic comedy set in the after-hours world of insomniacs Danny (Roberts) and Lisa (Thomas), who have no secrets except their feelings for each other.
The trailer zeroes Danny and Lisa’s bond. They struggle to sleep and bond as they help each other through the night.
Insomnia isn’t easy to handle, so having someone on the other end of a phone with you throughout that difficult time must be comforting.
While Danny and Lisa believe their bond to be platonic, it seems romantic feelings are simmering beneath the surface between them.
The logline does reveal they have no secrets except their feelings for each other, so there’s a good chance the eight-part comedy will chart that throughout.
The promo also shows their respective dating journies, and Lisa’s boyfriend struggles with the fact that she comes alive when everyone else is asleep.
It’s an exciting concept for a comedy series, and we can’t wait to see how it all plays out.
Still Up will debut with the first three episodes on Friday, September 22.
New episodes follow weekly, with a new installment every Friday through October 27.
The cast is rounded out by Blake Harrison, Lois Chimimba, Luke Fetherston, and Rich Fulcher.
Still Up is co-created & written by Steve Burge (Seekers) and Natalie Walter.
Bryce Hart (Ten Percent) also writes on the series.
It is directed by BAFTA Award nominee John Addis (Lucky Break).
Still Up is produced for Apple TV+ by Various Artists Limited, executive produced by BAFTA Award winner Paul Schlesinger (Twenty Twelve), Emmy award-winning Phil Clarke (I May Destroy You), and series produced by Arabella McGuigan (Brief Encounters).
