He will be appearing as the character Anthony in the comedy about a group of ‘twenty something’ adults living together in a disused hospital as property guardians. The new show will premiere in January next year Channel 4 have announced today.

Damien joins a stellar cast, including writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Broadchurch, The Iron Lady, Bad Education), Louise Ford (Chickens, Not Safe for Work), Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch, W1A), Julie Dray (Cradle To Grave), Amit Shah (Jekyll & Hyde, The Hundred Foot Journey), Adrian Scarborough (Gavin & Stacey, Miranda, Plebs), Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum, Bluestone 42), Lachie Chapman (The Overtones) and Kathy Burke (Absolutely Fabulous, Harry Enfield & Chums).

Read the full description from Channel 4 below.

CRASHING, starting on January 11th at 10pm on Channel 4, is a comedy drama that crashes straight into the lives and loves of six twenty-something adults living together as Property Guardians in a disused hospital. In amongst the asbestos and abandoned x-ray machines live sexually explosive estate agent Sam (Jonathan Bailey), frustrated French artist Melody (Julie Dray), shy and excitable Fred (Amit Shah), and happily engaged couple Anthony and Kate (Damien Molony and Louise Ford). It’s practically peaceful. That is, until the spontaneous arrival of Lulu (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), Anthony’s oldest and least responsible friend…

In an age of unaffordable housing and sky-high rents, becoming a Property Guardian has never been so appealing, with thousands of people paying as little as £25 a week to live in unoccupied buildings in exchange for ‘protecting’ the property from disrepair. Just imagine waking up every morning in your own historic building in the most exciting city in the world. Even if it is an enormous, creepy, derelict hospital.

Our fave actor revealed he was filming for a new TV comedy in interviews earlier this year and fan speculation began when he posted the photo below on his Instagram page. A disused hospital perhaps?
