About this show

Buffering follows Iain (Iain Stirling), a children's TV presenter with an aversion to kids and in an up and down relationship (mainly down) with TV producer Olivia (Elena Saurel). Iain's housemates Rosie (Jessie Cave), Greg (Paul G Raymond), Ashley (Rosa Robson) and Thalia (Janine Harouni) alongside Ashley's old flame Robbie (Sean Sagar), are all navigating that age where they're too old for nightclubs but too poor for mortgages. Part of a generation who are told they must live the perfect life, these friends discover it's not only ok but healthy to fail, over and over again.
