CH4 one off episode - Newport Bouncers

Postby Dave » 06 Dec 2011, 21:16

Coming in January.

Newport - the gateway to Wales. Celebrated in the cult YouTube hit Newport State of Mind, the birthplace of Goldie Lookin Chain and home to LRS Security, who look after many of the city centre's bars and clubs.

This funny, irreverent and often surprising film - coming soon to Channel 4 - follows the boys of Newport's biggest security firm over a summer of booze, brawls and brotherhood in a place where men fight men, women fight women and women fight like men.

At the helm is MD Richie Davis, whose ambition for the company is huge. A new contract, which has just come in, could mean massive things lie ahead.

Operations director Len Harrhy, meanwhile, is battling against his love of donuts. He's desperate for his waistline to stop growing at the same rate as the business.

Out of their HQ above a cafe on the High Street, they run a team of loyal lads who are regular fixtures on the doors in town. Managing the drunk and often difficult locals week in week out, the boys give a rare insight into what it's like being a bouncer in one of the most unique cities in Britain.

Twenty-seven-year-old Joe Gower is a born-and-bred valley boy; his dry, acerbic wit and tongue-in-cheek human observation are second to none. He was once a top earner in the insurance industry but lost it all in the credit crunch and is now trying to build himself back up again.

Moving to Newport and becoming a doorman saved 21-year-old Jamie Yarnold's life. The regular bouncer on a gay-friendly venue, he was severely bullied from the age of six and ballooned to 21 stone. Now through working on the doors he's finally found the friends and respect he always wanted and even met the love of his life.

University student Geraint Clarke is a natural born charmer and the bouncer philosopher with a love of Oscar Wilde. His Toni and Guy haircut is well known throughout the streets of Newport and he enjoys the camaraderie of his job and all the female perks it brings.

Newport – the gateway to Wales. Celebrated in the cult YouTube hit Newport State of Mind, the birthplace of Goldie Lookin Chain and home to LRS Security who look after many of the city centre’s bars and clubs.

This funny, irreverent and often surprising film follows the boys of Newport’s biggest security firm over a summer of booze, brawls and brotherhood in a place when men fight men, women fight women and women fight like men. At the helm is MD Richie Davis whose ambition for the company is huge. A new contract, which has just come in, could mean massive things lie ahead. Operations director Len Harrhy, meanwhile, is battling against his love of donuts. He’s desperate for his waistline to stop growing as much as the business.
