Next Episode of Lunch Monkeys is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Welcome to the world of Lunch Monkeys, starring Nigel Havers (Brothers And Sisters) and Sian Reeves (Hope Springs, Cutting It and Northern Lights) with Steve John Shepherd (This Life) alongside a cast of new young talent. The administration department of personal injury law firm of Fox Cranford is a gathering place for school-leavers, no-hopers and general misfits – and if they monkey around till lunch, its guerrilla warfare in the office till dinner. Straight out of school, and into a job they don't want, Darrel, Kenny, Asif, Shelley and Tania are going nowhere fast. Looked down on by the solicitors they work for, they face constant criticism by their power hungry supervisor Gloria Stevens. Bored senseless for eight hours a day, the post room gang fill their time fighting, flirting, winding each other up and generally causing mayhem.
Tania's having a bad day. Darrel's living in the office, Gloria's winding her up, Asif's running away to Wales, Shelley's flat-hunting and Kenny's kissing strange girls and drawing pictures. The post room is in chaos and it's Tania's first appraisal as supervisor. Asif is so stressed that he enlists evil Charlie's help in convincing his family that he is a top lawyer. They want him to sue the optician who sold faulty glasses to his Auntie Reena.
Can Tania pull it all together, pass her appraisal and get back on board the Kenny boat before it sails for good?
Darrel's in love. The only problem is that it's with Mike's daughter, who is hell-bent on causing as much trouble at work as possible so she can go skiing with her mates. Kenny and Tania are in love too, and trying to find five minutes away from Asif to enjoy a spot of heavy petting. With Gloria off sick, Shelley is her unlikely replacement and organises a presentation for Mike to remember.
Shelley wakes up in the office with the hangover from hell, annoys the other monkeys all day and smells terrible. Kenny and Tania's sex life is under scrutiny when Tania lets slip to Gloria that they didn't spend the previous night together and rumours fly through the office. Darrel's counter-espionage only makes things worse and his relationship advice for Asif, who has a crush on the office flower girl, isn't working. And there's a limo in Mike's personal parking space, so he's going up the wall.
Kenny is back from a week on tour with the band for which he does photos and flyers. Tania has missed him, but Asif has missed him more. Tania has planned a motivational exercise involving hats and five-yearlife plans which puts the fear into Kenny. Is this it? Work, marriage, kids then death?
Tania wants everyone to think about their dreams for the future, but Shelley can only think about her recurring nightmare featuring household chores. Darrel's life plan involves replacing Tania as postroom supervisor. And why is Darrel too embarrassed to share the contents of his dream?
Darrel's estranged dad Pat turns up doing odd jobs at Fox Cranford. Pat soon spots an opportunity to find a new home at Darrel and Shelley's flat having been kicked out by his ex. Shelley sees Pat for the unreliable self-obsessed idiot that he is and verges on the point of violence. It's a big day for Asif - if he passes his driving test he's been promised a new set of wheels by his dad. And Kenny is stressed because everyone thinks he's boring now he's settled with Tania and sets out to prove them wrong.
It's Fox Cranford's 30-year anniversary, but the celebration is a damp squib involving Gloria's homemade cake. Kenny is panic stricken when he mistakenly thinks that Tania is pregnant, Mike is on the verge ofmeltdown, the firm is going under and the icy silent partner Miss Fox is on the prowl - busting balls and sorting out the firm's inefficiencies.
Tania and Shelley decide to hold a proper party to cheer Mike up. Kenny is in charge of the food and drink and with Darrel and Asif's help it quickly goes pear-shaped. Will Mike top himself? Is Shelley pregnant? Or is it Tania?
