Haruka Abe plays series regular Tomoko in brand new Channel 4 comedy series Stath Lets Flats.
The Rough Cut TV production is written by and stars comedian Jamie Demetiou (Fleabag, Paddington). It follows Stath, a chaotic but well-meaning lettings agent, working for his Greek-Cypriot father in North London. Across the series, Stath tries to prove himself a worthy heir to the family business, ‘Michael and Eagle’, despite his epic incompetence and divisive personality. Against the backdrop of London’s crazy property market, Stath Lets Flats is a highly original workplace comedy with family at its heart, which offers a unique glimpse of Greek-Cypriot life in the city. The series is co-written by Robert Popper (Peep Show, Friday Night Dinner) and directed by Tom Kingsley who was behind BAFTA-nominated feature Black Pond.
The 6-part sitcom is shown weekly on Wednesdays at 10pm.
