15 Minutes of Misery (1998)

Sean Lock presents a show from his high-rise tower block flat, listening in to the varied assortment of neighbours who live around him, and interrupted by the occasional visitor.


15 Storeys High (series one 1999, series two 2000)

Vince lives in Flat 76, Elderberry House, Maydew Estate, trying to keep the world at bay. The world, for some reason, does not want to play his game.

Series two aired from 24 November 2000 to 22 December 2000, and included roles from Dan Freedman, Alex Lowe, Dan Mersh, Paul Putner, Rob Rouse and Chris Neill. The show introduced Sean's flatmate Errol (played by Serafinowicz in series 1, episodes 2–5).

The series later transferred to television.
