Home Time – introduction

Home Time: Emma Fryer as Gaynor (image: Baby Cow)

New six-part comedy series Home Time is coming to BBC Two.

Home Time is co-written by and starring comedy actress Emma Fryer (Ideal) and features a nearly all-female ensemble cast: Hayley Jayne Standing (My Dad's The Prime Minister), Kerry Godliman (Extras), Rebekah Staton (Pulling), Marian McLoughlin (The Omid Djalili Show), plus Philip Jackson (Poirot) and James Daffern (Emmerdale, Love Letters).

The series comprises six 30-minute episodes, is co-written by Neil Edmond (Man Stroke Woman) and has been filmed on location in Coventry.

Emma Fryer plays the lead role of Gaynor Jacks who returns to her hometown, Coventry, home to her Mum and Dad's house, and home to her three best friends, Mel, Becky and Kelly.

At the age of 17 she ran off to find her place in the big wide world but now, aged 29, she's back with her tail between her legs.

Gaynor can't hide forever in her bedroom, she must crawl back into her old life, suffer the gleeful sympathy of her friends and ill-judged parental intrusions... all played out in front of old flames and adversaries Gaynor never thought she'd see again and underscored by the smirking cries of "see you're back then".

The series was commissioned by Lucy Lumsden, former BBC Controller, Comedy Commissioning, and produced by Baby Cow Productions, the makers of the award-winning Gavin And Stacey and The Mighty Boosh.

The Executive Producers are Rebecca Papworth and Cheryl Taylor for the BBC and Henry Normal and Lindsay Hughes for Baby Cow Productions.

Home Time is directed by Christine Gernon (Gavin And Stacey, One Foot In The Grave) and produced by Ted Dowd (Gavin And Stacey, Nighty Night).
