“Really looking forward to making Living the Dream a reality! Along with a hugely talented cast and crew! Fire up my trailer park!” – Philip Glenister

Living the Dream, a comedy drama from the makers of Cold Feet, has been commissioned to air on Sky 1 later this year. Starring Philip Glenister and Lesley Sharp, the series has been created and written by Mick Ford. The six part run of episdoes follows a British family, the Pembertons – husband Mal (Glenister), wife Jen (Sharp) and their two teenage kids, Tina (Rosie Day) and Freddie (Brenock O’Connor) – who decide it’s time to leave rainy England and move to the sunshine state of Florida.

Mal’s bought an RV Park with plans for a booming family-run business, but it soon turns out that they are not going to be living the dream they hoped. Before they’ve even settled in, Mal discovers that the park is home to a group of eccentric residents who are not exactly thrilled to meet their new owners. Jen has to learn how to survive American suburbia and the kids have to navigate a US high school.
With culture clashes aplenty, life in Britain soon seems even further away than they’d thought it would. But with the support of each other and their crazy new friends, they begin to learn how to live the American dream.
“This is an amazing opportunity to work on a warm and witty comedy drama with a great colleague Phil Glenister. It’s wonderful to be working with him again and the talented and inspired team at Big Talk.” – Lesley Sharp
