AppleTV+ Picks Up Romantic Comedy 'Still Up' Starring Antonia Thomas and Craig Roberts

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original comedy series Still Up starring Antonia Thomas (The Good Doctor) and Craig Roberts (Red Oaks). Production is currently underway in London.

The comedy is set in the after-hours world of insomniacs Danny (Roberts) and Lisa (Thomas), who have no secrets except for their feelings for each other. Free-spirited Lisa is an aspiring illustrator working as a waitress, raising her young daughter Poppy alongside loving partner Veggie. Danny is a gifted journalist suffering from extreme anxiety that profoundly impacts his life. While the rest of the world sleeps, these two friends spend their long nights talking, and despite being apart, they have come to rely on each other in the hazy, heightened evening hours. As their unique relationship unfolds, we begin to realize that they may be much more than friends.

In addition to Thomas and Roberts, the comedy stars Blake Harrison, Lois Chimimba, Luke Fetherston, Rich Fulcher and Sam Spiro.

Steve Burge and Natalie Walter created the comedy, with John Addis directing. They will executive produce with Paul Schlesinger and Phil Clarke. Various Artists Limited will produce.
