Green Wing is an award-winning British television comedy drama set in the fictional East Hampton Hospital Trust. It was created by the same team behind the sketch show Smack the Pony.
Although set in a hospital, there are no medical storylines; the action is produced by a series of soap opera and Commedia dell'arte-style twists and turns in the personal lives of the characters. They proceed through a series of often absurd sketch-like scenes connected by lazzi, or by sequences where the film is slowed down or sped up, often emphasising the body language of the characters.
Production Company: Channel 4 Television Corporation
Year of Publication: 2004
