Worst Week of My Life brings wedding fiasco to BBC ONE


A new BBC ONE comedy will explore the tension, mishaps and nightmares that befall a groom during the week leading up to his wedding.


Worst Week of My Life will star Ben Miller, known as one half of the comedy duo behind Channel 4's Armstrong and Miller show.


Sarah Alexander, who has appeared in Coupling and Smack The Pony, will play his bride-to-be.


Each episode of the seven-part series will feature the events of a single day in the week before Miller's character's big day - and it is a catalogue of mishaps.


BBC's controller of entertainment commissioning Jane Lush, who commissioned Worst Week of My Life along with BBC ONE's controller Lorraine Heggessey, said: "We see him at work but a lot of the action takes places at his in-laws.


"It's about the planning of his wedding, all the worst nightmares and faux pas you can imagine with your in-laws befall him. The humour is very visual."


Worst Week of My Life has been written by Mark Bussell and Justin Sbresni.


The BBC ONE sitcom is being made by Hat Trick and is due to go into production later this year and will be broadcast in 2004.


All the BBC's digital services are now available on Freeview, the new free-to-view digital terrestrial television service, as well as on satellite and cable.

Freeview offers the BBC's eight television channels, interactive services from BBCi, as well as 11 BBC radio networks.
