Outnumbered
Karen (Ramona Marquez), Mum (Claire Skinner), Dad (Hugh Dennis), Ben (Daniel Roche) and Jake (Tyger Drew-Honey) in Outnumbered

Outnumbered – starts Tuesday 28 August 2007 at 10.35pm on BBC One



Introduction


Hugh Dennis (Mock The Week, My Hero), Claire Skinner (Sense And Sensibility, Life Begins) and Samantha Bond (Die Another Day) star in Outnumbered, a new BBC One comedy series from the creators of Drop The Dead Donkey Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton.

 

Outnumbered follows the daily chaos of family life and two parents and three young children locked in an unequal contest.

 

Across six half-hour episodes, viewers witness an honest portrayal of the well-meaning parental incompetence that happens in most homes, as a beleaguered mum and dad attempt to raise their kids with the minimum of emotional damage for all concerned.

 

The series – Jenkin and Hamilton's first collaboration in eight years contains elements of improvisation. David Ryall (The League Of Gentlemen's Apocalypse) and Hattie Morahan (Sense And Sensibility) also star.

 

Outnumbered is written, directed and produced by Andy Hamilton (Trevor's World Of Sport, Bedtime) and Guy Jenkin (Crossing The Floor, Jeffrey Archer The Truth).

 

It was commissioned by Lucy Lumsden, BBC Controller Comedy Commissioning. The Executive Producer for the BBC is Jon Rolph.
