Franc Ashman shoots the role of Molly in Peep Show for Objective Productions.

Peep Show follows the lives of two men from their twenties to thirties. Mark Corrigan (Mitchell), who has steady employment for most of the series, and Jeremy “Jez” Usbourne (Webb), an unemployed would-be musician, are the main characters of the show. The pair met at the fictional Dartmouth University, and now share a flat in Croydon, south London. Mark is initially a loan manager at the fictional JLB Credit, later becoming a waiter and then a bathroom supplies salesman. He is financially secure but neurotic and socially awkward, with a pessimistic and cynical outlook on life. Jeremy, having split up with his girlfriend Big Suze prior to the first episode, now lives in Mark’s spare room. He usually has a much more confident and happy-go-lucky outlook on the world than Mark, yet his self-proclaimed talent as a musician has yet to be recognised, and he is not as popular or attractive as he would like to think himself, although he is more successful with women than Mark.

This will be the ninth and final series of Peep Show.
