Jazz Musicians are Timewasters!

Tonight (Monday) at ten o’clock on ITV 2 the first of six half-hour episodes of a brand new comedy series features four twenty-first century young black jazz musicians transported back in time to the Roaring Twenties. In Timewasters the Londoners’ time machine is destroyed, stranding the quartet in 1926. Amidst their desire to return to the present day they’re offered a high society gig…in 1926. Along the way, they meet John Logie Baird!
Daniel Lawrence Taylor, Kadiff Kirwan, Adelayo Adedayo and Samson Kayo star as the time (jazz time!) travellers. Daniel Lawrence Taylor co-wrote Timewasters with Barunka O’Shaughnessy. The fact that terrestrial tv is allotting air time to a comedy series centred on a jazz quartet is something to celebrate. Fingers crossed that Timewasters is re-commissioned.
