Channel 4’s on-demand platform All 4 is set to film part of their latest show, Lee & Dean, in Great Yarmouth.

Created by Miles Chapman, Mark O’Sullivan and Sam Underwood, the mockumentary sitcom focuses on two dodgy builders.

Chapman and O’Sullivan will star in the show, alongside Ramon Tikaram and Ricky Grover.

Channel 4 describe the show as “an improvised, unconventional and wholly original comedy set in Stevenage which centres around builder best mates Lee and Dean.

“It’s a story of cheap builds, cheap lager, bark rubbing, break ups and bad poetry, but at the heart of it lies the heat-warming bromance between Lee and Dean.”

Scenes for the series are being shot in Great Yarmouth on Wednesday, May 17 and a casting company are looking for extras to take on various roles in a spa scene.

It has not been confirmed where the production will be shooting in the area.

Yarmouth has also recently been used as a location for Fighting With My Family, a feature film directed by Stephen Merchant that follows the journey of a wrestler from Norwich to WWE stardom.
