No Skillz

A comedy series by Alex Newman and Nicola Cotter.

Alec Christie (Last Chancers, Meet Ricky Gervais) stars as a loser looking for redemption in the world of five a side football in the hilarious comedy series pilot "No Skillz".

Watch as his team are destroyed on the pitch by the vicious New World Order and berated by regional radio presenters Damien Kingstar (Stephen Merchant, The Office, Extras) and his sidekick The Jester in this ball -busting comedy. Contact us for the pilot episode.


Christie is one of life’s dreamers. Having lost his job, his clothes, his girlfriend and all of his dignity he decides to turn his life around.

With the help of his small band of rather odd friends he starts a five aside football team called “No Skillz” and enters them into the local Power League.

Christie’s attempt to win back his girlfriend Ruby backfires when No Skillz are humiliated on the pitch and Ruby takes a fancy to one of the opposing players.

But all is not lost for Christie as Nicola, the attractive Power League receptionist, is charmed by his naive enthusiasm.
