dinnerladies (UK)

Set entirely in the canteen of HWD Components, a fictional factory in Manchester. The inner lives and social interactions of the mostly female, mostly middle-aged staff are vividly and amusingly depicted. Bren tries to maintain order among the chaos, while dealing with her unspoken love for the canteen supervisor, sex-obsessed cancer sufferer Tony.
