Proposal

Episode 11 of 12

Comedy with Joe Thomas (The Inbetweeners) and Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who). Jamie is planning to propose to Lucy. Will he make a hash of it? By Ben Ashenden and Alex Owen (The Pin).

PROPOSAL is a sitcom starring Joe Thomas (The Inbetweeners) and Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who), written by Ben Ashenden and Alex Owen, stars of Radio 4's acclaimed sketch show The Pin.

It follows couple Jamie (Thomas) and Lucy (Mackie), as Jamie builds up the nerve to pop the question - and the series of disasters that follow as he attempts to negotiate the unwritten rules of marriage proposals. First he has to ask permission - but not just from Lucy's dad, Mike (Nigel Lindsay, Four Lions). As Jamie's enthusiastic but deeply unhelpful friends Chris (Ben Ashenden, Bridget Jones's Baby, Tracey Ullman's Show) and Tom (Alex Owen, Crackanory, Wannabe) are quick to point out, he needs to check in with her mum too. After all, it is 2018.

For her part, ambitious career woman Lucy is not sure about the institution of marriage. And as his behaviour gets increasingly suspicious, she's becoming less sure about Jamie. Proposal is a comedy about how a heartfelt longing to 'do the right thing' for the one you love can go seriously wrong.
