Who is the real Lauren Harries and what became of the little boy who sold us antiques on 'Oprah' and 'Wogan' show in the 80's? Lauren Harries: Working 9-5 followed TV's most eccentric celebrity, as she attempts five mystery jobs, back to back in just forty hours; under the watchful eyes of five top mentors.
In this cringe-worthy, yet hilariously funny series (which Digital Spy called "Car-crash TV at it's best"), Lauren attempts to sell a house, cut it as a fish merchant, teach an aerobics class, host a live radio show and even audition for a musical... all in her own unique and endearing way.
I devised, developed and produced this series, in response to Keith Allen's 2004 Channel 4 documentary, Little Lady Fauntleroy; in a bid to give Lauren an opportunity to set the record straight and show the real her. I managing every detail of the series from concept to network delivery. The series was picked up by Showcase TV and broadcast as part of the line-up for the launch of the channel in 2010.
