What has Stephen Merchant said about filming in Bristol?
Stephen said he could not think of a more suitable place to film the new comedy-crime thriller.
The series follows a group of seven strangers who have been forced together to complete community service.
In an interview with ITV West Country, he said: “My parents were involved in community service here in Bristol supervising people who had committed minor offences and I just thought that was an interesting backdrop for a show.
"Because on TV you’re always looking to bring people together for some reason or another."

The Outlaws will start on Monday, October 25, 2021 at 9pm on BBC One.
The six part series will then air every Monday night.
You will also be able to watch episodes on the BBC iPlayer.
