Tagged in: Press Releases
STV's award winning drama series High Times will air on STV Glasgow starting Tuesday 1 July at 2100.
 
Comedy drama High Times is a gritty and humorous look at the lives of the colourful residents of a high rise block of flats in Glasgow.
 
The critically acclaimed series was first broadcast in 2004, picking up a Scottish BAFTA and a Celtic Film and Television Award for best drama. The second series aired in 2008.
 
The line-up of much loved characters include layabouts Rab and Jake, couch potato Frank and long suffering wife Janet, menopausal Alice and ex-con husband Eddie, rebellious teenager Tracey and young single mum Claire.
 
High Times is written by John Rooney and features some of Scotland's best home grown acting talent including Stephen McCole (The Wee Man, Merlin, Band of Brothers), Alison Peebles (Shetland, The Acid House), Jon Morrison (Vera, Dream Team), John Comerford (Young Adam, My Name is Joe), Cora Bissett (Rab C. Nesbitt, Red Road, Taggart) and James Grant (Two Thousand Acres of Sky, Monarch of the Glen).
 
Elizabeth Partyka, deputy director of channels at STV, said: “High Times is a fantastic series full of wonderful characters, gritty drama and laugh out loud comedy. We are thrilled to broadcast the full series again on our new STV Glasgow channel, giving fans another chance to follow the ups and downs of Rab, Jake and their neighbours, and hopefully finding a whole new audience for this popular hit show.”
 
STV Glasgow will air two 30-minute episodes of High Times back to back every Tuesday from 2100.
 
STV Glasgow began broadcasting on Monday 2 June to a potential audience of 2 million viewers in the west of Scotland on Freeview channel 23, Sky channel 117 and Virgin channel 159. The new channel is available to watch live online via the STV Player.
