Lip Service is a ground-breaking TV comedy drama series, focusing on the romantic lives of three gay women living in contemporary Glasgow. After two years living and working in New York, talented photographer Frankie (28), returns to Glasgow for her aunt's funeral. For Frankie it's time to confront her family, herself and her relationship with her ex-love, Cat. Cat (29), is an architect who has finally plucked up the courage to re-enter the dating scene and meets a loyal, feisty and funny cop, Sam (30). Their relationship blossoms Sam offers Cat everything the wild, capricious Frankie couldn't but simmering below the surface for both Frankie and Cat is an enduring love and passion that cant be ignored. Tess is an actress, who is fast approaching 30 with no career, money or love life. Like Frankie and Cat, she wants to learn from the past and find happiness but are they all destined to make the same mistakes again? Funny, irreverent and moving, Lip Service follows the interwoven ... Written by Kudo Film and Television

Deserves a wider audience, insightful and compelling...
13 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just seen my first episode, and as a mere man, I thought it was great! Superb acting, great music, it was moody, gritty, filmed in a fly on the wall "cinema verite'" way. It deserves a much greater audience; the scenes of a sexual nature are filmed with tact and discretion that shows the passion without too much gynecological detail (quite a challenge!). I can't wait to see more episodes of this thoughtful,insightful, appealing series. There have been so many references to male gay friendship, yet until "The L Word" and now "Lip Service it has been undercover. Lip service is an intelligent, and well thought out drama series that deserves a award, and better publicity.
