A dysfunctional, wealthy mining dynasty, with an ailing patriarch and some greedy siblings. A peculiarly British take on telenovela style melodramas and soaps such as Dallas.
Written by duo Sam Bain (Peep Show, Fresh Meat, Rev.) and Jesse Armstrong (Peep Show, Fresh Meat, The Thick of It), this is undoubtedly a must-watch program. Hilarious, smart, and featuring an absolute all-star cast (including Sharon Horgan, Julia Davis, Olivia Colman and Peter Serafinowicz). The full pilot is available above, and the first series is airing sometime this year. Watch, love, discuss.
