Peep Show’s Jeremy Talks Show’s Future
Speaking to thelondonpaper yesterday, Robert Webb has claimed that the sixth series of Peep Show, which premieres later this month, is the best yet.
The actor, who plays hapless musician Jeremy in the sitcom, said that the show has maintained its quality because of the amount of time dedicated to the script. The seventh series is currently being written.
He said: “Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain work deeply on the script. It takes them six months a series, which is why the quality has stayed so high.
“I think it gets better every time. If I had to say which are my favourite series in order, I’d say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. We’ll do it for as long as they want us to, but they may want a break at some point.”
When asked about the upcoming episodes, he added: “I can’t say too much. I mustn’t say who the father of Sophie’s baby is, and one other big development. But a new woman enters Jeremy’s life.
“He falls hopelessly in love with an eastern European called Elena, which doesn’t run smoothly at all. All the regulars are there and lots of the usual mishaps and disasters, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.”
