The VT King follows the daily exploits of narcissistic and inept television director Mark Barrett and his long suffering crew, as they visit the cities, towns and villages of the nation, spreading the magic of media everywhere they go.
Mark is the golden boy of prime time VT production, making the choice film inserts for Britain's most popular daily magazine show, 'UK Today'. Working with the biggest names in C-List presenting talent, he’s got millions of viewers hanging onto his every frame.
But there are younger (and cheaper!) guns firing for his job, and with budget cuts looming, relationships straining and egos clashing, just how long can Mark stay at the top of his game, avoid a mutiny, keep on the right side of his executives - and hold on to his self-proclaimed title of television's 'VT King'?
