Lunch Monkeys is a British situation comedy, first shown on BBC Three in 2008.


Lunch Monkeys by David Isaac is a BBC Three comedy series, produced by Channel X North,[1] set in the administration department of fictional personal injury law firm Fox Cranford. The stories focus on the support staffers who work in the postroom of a Mancunian firm of solicitors. The postroom workers tend to be immature, lazy, disorganized, and unproductive, including their supervisor—the firm's office manager—all of whom constantly frustrate the efforts of the firm's managing partner.

The series is made by Manchester indie Channel K and series 2 went into production in April 2010. The BBC Press Office announced the return of the six-episode new series on 3 February 2011.[2]

On 27 May 2011 it was revealed by BBC Three's Controller Zai Bennett, that the show had been axed along with fellow BBC Three Comedies Coming of Age and How Not to Live Your Life. He explained that "They were good to the channel, but have had their time,".
