Sky 1 has announced an impressive cast for its new comedy about Brits trying to create a new life in the US
Sky 1 says Philip Glenister and Lesley Sharp will co-star in its new comedy Living the Dream, about a British family starting a new life in Florida.
The six part series follows a British family, the Pembertons – husband Mal (Philip), wife Jen (Lesley) and their two teenage kids, Tina (Rosie Day) and Freddie (Brenock O’Connor) – who decide it’s time to leave rainy England and move to the sunshine state of Florida.
Philip said: “Really looking forward to making Living the Dream a reality! Along with a hugely talented cast and crew! Fire up my trailer park!”
Lesley Sharp commented: “This is an amazing opportunity to work on a warm and witty comedy drama with a great colleague Phil Glenister. It's wonderful to be working with him again and the talented and inspired team at Big Talk.”
Adam MacDonald, director of Sky 1, said: “Living the Dream is going to be great fun – a sparky, funny comedy drama that both embraces and punctures the notion of living the great American dream. I can’t wait to see Phil, Lesley and the Big Talk gang take the Sky 1 viewers on an adventure of a lifetime.”
Luke Alkin, executive producer, Big Talk, added: “We’re delighted to bring Mick Ford’s exciting new series to Sky 1. There are nearly half a million Brits living the dream in Florida so it’s a fantastic setting for this bold, funny and heart-warming show.”
Living the Dream, from the makers of Cold Feet, is coming to Sky 1 later this year. Filming began recently in the US.
