Sam Bain's comedy about a man so obsessed with celebrity trivia his own life passes him by

Sam Bain (Peep Show, Fresh Meat) has adapted his novel Yours Truly, Pierre Stone into a dark and disconcerting 4 x 15 radio comedy. The story is told in Pierre's own voice as he records messages for his most favourite TV star, Tess Daly and asks her all about her life, messages that are doomed to go forever unanswered.

But Pierre's passion to find out more about Tess's favourite dress gets in the way of him dealing with his own problems, including a mother in hospital and mounting uncertainty about where his next meal is coming from...

Pierre is a TV trivia obsessed innocent living in a world whose bigger challenges he would rather not think about.

Starring Alex Macqueen (The Thick of It) as Pierre.

Produced by Gareth Edwards

A BBC Studios Production.

Sam Bain's dark comedy about a man obsessed with celebrities while his life falls apart.

Sam Bain's adaptation of his own darkly comic satirical novel about Pierre Stone, a man so engrossed in the lives of TV stars that he completely ignores the disintegration of his own life.

This week Pierre's attempts to attract the attention of Strictly Come Dancing's Tess Daly leads to him dropping a line to Claudia Winkleman. Perhaps, he thinks, if he can play them off against each other Tess will get jealous and realise that she really ought to reply to at least one of his fan messages. In his efforts to get Tess jealous enough to notice he exists Pierre also recruits local ne'er-do-well Vicky to take part in a rather unlikely game of celebrity Twister...

Starring Alex Macqueen and Lolly Adefope.
