Cachet Windows and Doors, is one of Essex's newly emerging double glazing showrooms. In the dog-eat-dog world of UPVC glazing, Vincent Swan (Ed Westwick) and his team are willing to break all the rules when it comes to flogging the ‘white stuff', especially if it means hitting their sales targets!
Vincent, our main protagonist, has a chance meeting with an old school friend, which opens his eyes to the opportunities in double glazing, and he soon finds himself heading up the sales team at Cachet Windows and Doors.
The most odious member of the team, Brian Fitzpatrick, is a thoroughly unpleasant individual, he'll stop at nothing to close a deal!
The final member of the team is kindhearted Martin Lavender (Joe Thomas). Before joining the sales team, he was part of a band that got their big break when their song went straight to number 1 in the charts – a week after Martin quit the band!
It's no surprise to find the show's writer was the co-creator of the fabulously funny ‘The Inbetweeners‘. White Gold has a similar vibe, and two of the Inbetweeners cast have followed the writer onto this new comedy. James Buckley played the brilliant ‘Jay Cartwright' and Joe Thomas, who played ‘Simon' in the teen comedy series.
White Gold was initially distributed internationally by BBC. However, you can now watch the show on Netflix. Two seasons with six episodes in each are now available to stream on the popular platform. While ‘White Gold' never hits the comedy high-bar of Inbetweeners, what it does, it does well, and you'll warm to these rogues.
