What do you get if you take one television chef, past his sell by date, add two armed robbers, stir in the police and simmer for three days?
The answer is OUT ON A LIMB, a black comedy served with a dressing of sexual tension and confusion written by Bob McCabe and Rob Churchill, directed by Rob Heath and produced by Joy Mellins and Dave Shanks for Theta Films.
On screen Felix Limb (Henry Goodman) appears to be the perfect convivial TV Chef. Off screen he is a neurotic with rapidly plummeting ratings and a neglected, beautiful Australian wife, Michelle (Julianne White).
Whilst hosting an end of series dinner party Michelle lets slip that his show has just been cancelled. His secret out, Felix rounds on Michelle; Isabelle (Bo Peterson), one of the few female editors in Fleet Street, drops his column; Bruce (Peter Gevisser), his producer, celebrates his new found freedom and Amy (Rolanda Marais), his PA, reveals their affair as she dumps him.
Can anything else can go wrong?
Yes, when two na´ve bank robbers forget to buy an A-Z and storm the dinner party...
