Often funny, sometimes shocking but always enlightening, the second series of Sewermen airs this Thursday 30th April at 9pm on Paramount Network (Freeview Channel 31; Freesat 132 and Sky 150).

This fly-on-the-wall documentary gets down and dirty with hard working people, including our very own Network Plus employees, who support the North West’s regional water and wastewater firm, United Utilities.

Filmed by Label1 TV, the brains behind the BBC’s award-winning documentary series Hospital, Sewermen brings back some favourite characters from the last series as well as introducing viewers to new stars in the making, including representatives from our company.

United Utilities Customer Services Director, Louise Beardmore, said: “This show is a window into our world and shines a light on the essential service we provide. It’s a great opportunity for people to see what we do every day to keep the water flowing for customers.”

“Water company staff are among the army of key workers making sure the UK continues to have the vital services it needs during the current COVID-19 crisis. Thousands of our people continue to be out on the UK’s streets carrying out critical maintenance, laying new pipes, finding and fixing leaks and unblocking sewers.”

Sewermen is a twelve part series following the everyday heroes of United Utilities, as they battle 50 metre long fatbergs, full of warmth and humour, these teams are on the road keeping the taps of the North-West running, the water clean, locating leaks and blockages.
