Each episode of SEMI-DETACHED, with Clive Russell, plays out in real time and “is exactly like [TV show] 24, except instead of following a government agent as he saves the planet, the series follows a perennial loser called Stuar as his life goes down the pan in a suburban cul-de-sac.”
All Stuart wants is a quiet life as a wedding DJ but his family seems to have other ideas. On top of barely coping with a (much younger) partner April and a new born baby, Stuart also has to look out for his jailbird brother Charlie and his promiscuous, drug-taking Dad Willie.
Then there’s the ex-wife Kate, who lives across the cul-de-sac with their teenage daughter Madonna and Kate’s husband Ted who thinks he’s better than Stuart because he sells fish to sushi restaurants.
Coming soon to BBC Two.
