The precocious philosophy student Dylan (Anders Hayward) and his buddy Sean (Ade Oyefeso) are backpacking Asia. In Beijing the boys meet the nerdy May (Alice Lee) and party animal Ashley (Brittney Wilson), who have the strange but very sympathetic Greg (Tim Key) in tow. The dissimilar travelers quickly become friends and start the trip of a lifetime together. Whether camping at the Great Wall of China, at a legendary full moon party or trekking through dense jungle – a lot of spectacular adventures, fascinating people and unforgettable experiences await the gang of five. The eight-part dramedy series “Gap Year” captivates with a fast-paced plot, funny dialogues and unexpected plot twists.

Jamie Campbell and Joel Wilson, who were nominated for the British BAFTA television award for “The Enfield Haunting”, are responsible as producers. The top-class team of authors includes Tom Basden (“Plebs”, “Fresh Meat”), James Wood (“Rev”) and Loren McLaughlan (“Shameless”). Guardian critic Sam Wollason praises “Gap Year” as an outstanding traveler comedy that makes you want to pack your backpack yourself again. The British entertainment magazine Heat says “Charming and witty, the whole cast is highly appealing” and Radio Times says: “Laughs and fun in the sun … Gorgeous.”

FOX will be presenting the new “Gap Year” series as a German TV premiere on Tuesdays at 9:00 pm from November 3rd.

About “Gap Year”

Student Dylan has just separated from his girlfriend and urgently needs other thoughts. A trip to the other end of the world, more precisely a backpack tour through China, seems to be exactly the right thing. His best buddy Sean quit his plumbing job in cold England to join him. In Beijing the boys meet the Americans May and Ashley as if by a coincidence. May was sent to China by her ambitious mother in order to trace her Chinese roots and the penniless but smart Ashley was hired as escort. The slightly quirky Englishman Greg joined the two Americans – not exactly what they wanted. The five completely different characters become friends – and soon the colorful troop will be “on the road”. The unforgettable journey full of confusing sexual experiences, surprising events and overwhelming impressions leads you back and forth across Asia and exceeds your wildest expectations. Dylan, Sean, May, Ashley and Greg: They are all on the search – and although none of them can find what he or she hoped for in the distance, at the end of this adventure they will be richer by many experiences and insights.
