Romesh Ranganathan and Katherine Ryan are teaming up for a Romantic Getaway and Sky’s footing the bill.
The six-part comedy series follows couple Alison (Katherine Ryan) and Deacon (Romesh Ranganathan), who are desperate to have a child. After countless IVF attempts, they are faced with the possibility it might not happen. They are unable to afford more rounds, and with mounting debts the pressure on the relationship begins to show. What is their solution? Steal. Now, they must avoid getting caught…
The modern Bonnie and Clyde story begins directly after Deacon and Alison have defrauded their dodgy boss, Alfie (Johnny Vegas), of £500k. The couple are sat in their car, buzzing with adrenaline. But after the buzz wears off, they must not only contend with the gruelling process of IVF, but also have to figure out how to use the money without getting found out, a challenge that draws them deep into the criminal underworld of Reading.
Written and created by Romesh Ranganathan and Benjamin Green – with additional writers Sarah Morgan and Elaine Gracie – the series is directed by Shaun Wilson and produced by Caroline Norris. Hailing from Ranga Bee and Sky Studios, the executive producers are Benjamin Green, Romesh Ranganathan and Michelle Farr-Scott for Ranga Bee and Anil Gupta and Jon Mountague for Sky Studios.
The series will premiere on Sky Max and NOW on 1st January 2023.
