What is Kate and Koji about? 

The official synopsis for this sweet new comedy reads: "Kate & Koji centres around a working-class woman who runs an old-fashioned café in a seaside town and who develops a strong, if sometimes volatile, friendship with an asylum-seeking African doctor. Although from very different worlds, Kate and Koji are similar in ways which they do not recognise, including a dogged determination to never back down!"

In episode three, Kate is sued over an accident in the cafe. While Medium wants her to apologise to get out of the situation, Kate begins to suspect Councillor Bone is involved.

Where is Kate and Koji filmed?

The comedy was filmed in a picturesque coastal town of Herne Bay, which is located in Kent and not too far from Canterbury. Who knows, once the lockdown is finished we might even be able to visit, particularly if they are filming season two there as well!
