Life Of Riley: Caroline Quentin stars in new BBC One sitcom - currently in production


Caroline Quentin returns to BBC One in brand new six-part sitcom Life Of Riley, currently in production for transmission in the New Year.

 

Maddy's just got married again. And she's about to find out what happens when two families collide.

 

Suddenly she finds herself presiding over a modern-day extended family: children, step-children, step-siblings and half-siblings, with a few ex-partners and in-laws thrown in.

 

Maddy is like Roseanne but thinner, like Seinfeld but with dirtier trainers, like Victor Meldrew – but she does believe it.

 

In Life Of Riley, Maddy discovers that parenting has never been so difficult or complicated and she finds herself outwitted at every turn by people a quarter of her age.

 

Life Of Riley is written by Georgia Pritchett (Smack The Pony, Feel The Force), directed by Martin Dennis (Black Books, Men Behaving Badly) and produced by Catherine Bailey (Feel the Force, Spider).

 

The Executive Producer is Alan Tyler for BBC Scotland. Life Of Riley is a Catherine Bailey Limited production for BBC Scotland.
