What is Spaced?

Spaced is a BAFTA-nominated channel 4 sitcom written by and starring Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson. The series plots the lives of Tim (Simon Pegg) and Daisy (Jessica Stevenson) as well as those of their friends.

Tim (Simon Pegg)Tim (Simon Pegg) is a twentysomething, underachieving comic book store (assistant) manager with a morbid fear of dogs and Daisy (Jessica Stevenson) is a would-be journalist who is yet to get an article printed.
To get their flat, they had to pose as a professional 'yuppie' couple and their landlady, Marsha (Julia Deakin), is still to realise their deceit.
Neighbour Brian (Mark Heap) is a conceptual artist and more than a bit... well, wierd.
Daisy's best friend Twist occassionally pops in to their flat and is currently flirting with Brian.
Mike (Nick Frost)Tim's best friend Mike is an enthusiastic member of many outdoor activity organisations including the territorial army, although they will never make up for the disappointment of not being able to be in the "real army".

Simon wrote (Mid-April, 2001):
"I've never really spoken of, or recommended one of the key influences on the writing of Spaced, this being the show,
Northern Exposure. It's a lot gentler than Spaced but it nevertheless
inspired me in it's use of the dreams and 'what if' sequences. The central strory concerns a New York doctor, who finds himself paying off his medical school tuition by serving as practitioner in a remote Alaskan township. It's nothing like Spaced really but if you watch it you will see kindered sentiments. Indeed when we pitched Spaced to LWT in early 97' we said it would be a cross between The Simpsons, The X-Files and Northern Exposure. "
