LOWDOWN is a fast-paced, idiosyncratic comedy which goes behind the scenes of a tabloid newspaper. Each week, columnist Alex Burchill does his best to increase the circulation of the ailing Sunday Sun, by getting whatever dirt he can on our local and international celebrities. Politicians, filmmakers, actors, singers, chefs and sporting heroes – all are fair game in this cut-throat world of celebrity news. And the outrageous antics that Alex resorts to are straight out of the tabloid toolkit. Meanwhile, Alex’s relationship with photographer, best friend and flat-mate Bob is put to the test when Bob’s new girlfriend Samantha moves in. And Alex’s on-off relationship with artist Rita becomes strained, when Alex finally meets someone else.
