Sick Note premieres

When a person is misdiagnosed with a fatal disease and begins to notice how everyone around him treats him better, he can’t be bothered with telling the truth.
Daniel Glass, a compulsive liar, who’s stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job, where he is under the thumb of his irrepressible boss Kenny West, is diagnosed with esophageal cancer.
But then he finds out he was misdiagnosed by the most incompetent oncologist on Earth, Dr. Ian Glennis (Frost) and that’s when Daniel has a big decision to make: come clean and go back to his old rubbish life, or keep this new information a secret and pretend to be ill.
The show looks at how desperate a person’s actions can become when a lie starts to spiral out of control.
