Digital channel Virgin 1 is about to introduce viewers to Tim, an everyday, nice, working guy who can’t help but get himself into the worst situations in HBO’s hit animated comedy The Life & Times of Tim.
Because they know seenit readers are fans of quality TV, Virgin 1 have sent us a great clip from the show which won’t appear on their own YouTube channel until May 26th. Remember, you saw it here first.
Tim lives in New York with his girlfriend Amy, who just wants them to be in a normal couple like everyone else, patiently putting up with his antics for as long as it takes for him to get his life in order.
Unfortunately, this is not made any easier by the fact that Tim’s world is full of characters who seem determined to aid him in his ongoing quest for cringe-worthy, embarrassing, and downright humiliating situations.
Tim somehow always gets it wrong, whether it’s inviting a hooker to meet his girlfriend’s parents to slapping his boss’s daughter’s behind at her prom.
Tim is the brainchild of former Saturday Night Live host Steve Dildarian who also provides Tim’s voice.
Filled with a cast of voices drawn from the New York comedy circuit, the series is executive produced by Dildarian, Tom Werner (“That 70s Show,” “3rd Rock from the Sun,” “The Cosby Show”), Jimmy Miller (“Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Borat”) and Mike Clements.
Time Out called the show “a cringing, scatological comedy of social awkwardness which enjoys both the HBO seal of approval and a small but growing US fanbase.”
The Life & Times of Tim airs exclusively on Virgin 1 from June.
