Log line: An ambitious mobile fruit seller and his overly honest co-worker struggle to maintain a wholesome appearance on a quiet Irish country roadside - with the arrival of a gossiping customer.
Treatment: Langers is the perfect antidote to all those virtuous artisan food programs. Each episode begins with the fruit selling duo talking directly to the camera from the roadside, trying to sell their produce with a carefully rehearsed marketing speech. This fragile veneer of wholesomeness is soon put to the test by the arrival of Josie - their mischievousness customer. It doesn’t take long before she lets loose all the juicy gossip about the goings on in the local village Ballylanger. Bit by bit the horrible sordid truth emerges, typically involving one or both of the fruit sellers, completely jeopardising their plans of respectability.
Emotional core: Lacey’s father like relationship with his best friend Sean Patrick and his co-workers strong bond to his dead wife gives the show a warm heart and counterbalance the tales of debauchery.
Style: The quaint cut out paper illustration style, ultra simple animation and use of photographic props give the show a homemade feel - underlining the theme of wholesomeness. This contrast nicely with the ugly character design.
