Ben Taylor directs The Circuit

Ben Taylor directs Channel 4 comedy The Circuit, which will transmit on 25th August at 10pm.

The one-off comedy re-unites Sharon Horgan and Dennis Kelly (who created Pulling) as they explore the horrors and social awkwardness of the dinner party circuit. When couple Gabe and Nat are invited to supper by their neighbours, they quickly find themselves stuck at the dinner party from hell, and a social engagement that looks set to repeat itself every few weeks. The Circuit stars Stars Adeel Akhtar, Eva Birthistle, Victoria Hamilton, Nicola Walker, Tobias Menzies, Desiree Akhavan and Paul Ready who stars as Danny. Paul is currently shooting Witness for the Prosecution for BBC1 opposite Toby Jones and Kim Cattrall and will also soon be seen starring in the second series of Fortitude for Sky Atlantic

The Circuit reunites Ben with Sharon Horgan, who Ben has worked with on all series of the award-winning Catstrophe for Channel 4, as well as new HBO series Divorce, which stars Sarah Jessica Parker. Ben’s other recent credits include new BBC2 comedy pilots Our Ex-Wife by Julie Thacker Scully, and James Acaster’s We the Jury, which will air in the coming weeks.
