Who are those girls at the station first thing in the morning, dressed in ridiculous outfits and fixed, cheery smiles, giving out stuff you don’t want? They are the promo girls whose job it is to try and force you to drink ‘Nectarino – the taste of sunshine in a bottle!’, or convince you to buy dubious clip-on hair extensions that make you look like a badger. They are part of the landscape of modern Britain and coming to a TV near you…
Give Out Girls is a fresh and bitingly funny sitcom about the stories and secrets of a gang of four girls, two guys and their boss who work in the world of promotions. Being ignored or verbally abused is just part of the job for these girls as they vie to become the all important top seller of the day. Give Out Girls follows the team as they are let loose flogging dodgy goods in even dodgier locations, whilst injecting as much mischief into the day as they can to make it pass as quickly as possible.
The lovable team is headed up by the quite unlovable Debbie, (Tracy-Ann Oberman); pretentious, narrow minded and a nightmare boss. Marilyn (Kerry Howard) is the linchpin of the group, rapidly nearing 30 and getting a bit old for this game. Gemma (Diana Vickers) is young, eager and not yet jaded like the rest of the bunch although her constant upbeat positivity sometimes makes the others just want to club her to death with a mini bottle of shampoo. Fellow promo girls include Zoe (Miranda Hennessy) a passive-aggressive, self-loving dancer from New Zealand and Poppy (Cariad Lloyd) who has her own unique way of looking at the world; she loves booze, partying and boys, in no particular order.
