Next Episode of Black Books is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Black Books is a second-hand bookshop in London run by an Irishman named Bernard Black. He is probably the planet's worst-suited person to run such an establishment: he makes no effort to sell, closes at strange hours on a whim, is in a perpetual alcoholic stupor, abhors his customers (sometimes physically abusing them) and is often comatose at his desk. Help comes in the lumpy shape of Manny Bianco, a hairy, bumbling individual who (almost by osmosis) becomes Bernard's assistant. Manny is not exactly great at the job either but he is a million times better than Bernard. Next door is Fran, an anxious, frustrated woman who runs a sort of new-age shop selling the most unlikely bits of arty junk. Fran is friends with Bernard and, through him, with Manny; together the trio become embroiled in escapades that are sometimes extreme or violent or fantastically ludicrous, and always bizarre.
Fran takes up piano. Bernard falls in love. Manny just wants a break. But genius finds no rest as Fran lies to a sweet old blind man and Bernard deceives his adoring public.
Fran can't sleep in the heat. Bernard needs a girlfriend to stop him staring. And Manny is worried about the reliability of his magic hot water bottle.
Manny uses his underworld connections to find Fran mysterious employment; so mysterious that she has no idea what she is doing. In return Bernard and Manny just have to educate a psychopath.
Unemployed and restless, Fran takes comfort in the discovery of her exotic new-found cousins. And in pursuit of Michelin stars Manny and Bernard transform the infested bookshop into a restaurant.
Fran tries to discover her inner karma at the advice of her disapproving friend Eva. Meanwhile, Bernard finds positive proof that Manny is mad.
Bernard and Manny can't hear themselves argue because of the builders next door. Fran suggests a holiday. But how will the three of them fare when they attempt to venture abroad together?
