A hit for Sky TV.  This comedy drama features many familiar names amongst it’s cast and to date has ran for five series.

The series like many shows today is an independent production, produced by Tiger Aspect Productions (credits include Mr Bean and The Vicar Of Dibley) for Sky TV.

From it’s first series the show has been a hit with audiences and therefore found itself recomissioned every year.


The series follows the day-to-day life of the main character Lisa Johnson, her husband Dan, parents, as well as neighbours, and colleagues.

Each episode is an hour long (including adverts) and takes place in various locations, including the cul-de-sac Lisa lives in, her workplace, local pub The Dog and Dart, and her widowed friend’s café.
