By Katherine Jakeways

Romantic comedy about love, infidelity and accidental pregnancy.

Sam loves Rose. And Rose loves Sam. But in forty weeks' time a girl called Bayley is having Sam's baby. As Sam struggles to do 'the right thing', Rose decides to move to Chicago for a fresh start.

Forty Weeks tells the story of a pregnancy, from conception to birth. It's a love story between two people, just not the two people who are having the baby.

Writer Katherine Jakeways (North by Northamptonshire) is described by The Radio Times as the 'new Victoria Wood' saying "her character comedy is so acutely observed and so sharp that it's in danger of causing permanent injury." Starring Rebecca Humphries (Big Bad World), Matthew Baynton (The Wrong Mans), Kimberley Nixon (Fresh Meat) and Julia Deakin (I'm Alan Partridge).

Directed by James Robinson
A BBC Cymru Wales Production.
