No Skillz is a comedy series pilot created by Kayak Productions. It stars Stephen Merchant as a regional radio sports commentator. Appearances are also made by Rufus Wright, and Dan Warren from The Steve Show.
In 2007 Kayak Productions, the production company behind No Skillz, went on to produce Christie, a twelve part web comedy series featuring many of the No Skillz cast including posh Rufus Wright from The Steve Show.
Christie is one of life’s dreamers. Having lost his job, his clothes, his girlfriend and all of his dignity he decides to turn his life around. With the help of his small band of rather odd friends he starts a five aside football team called “No Skillz” and enters them into the local Power League. Christie’s attempt to win back his girlfriend Ruby backfires when No Skillz are humiliated on the pitch and Ruby takes a fancy to one of the opposing players. But all is not lost for Christie as Nicola, the attractive Power League receptionist, is charmed by his naïve enthusiasm.
