BBC One has released the first trailer for their new comedy Here We Go, starring Alison Steadman, Katherine Parkinson, Jim Howick and Tom Basden.
The new six-part comedy follows a successful pilot in 2020, under the title Pandemonium and follows a year in the life of the irrepressible Jessop family as filmed by youngest son, Sam.
We witness the highs and lows of the Jessop family as they navigate a combination of life’s everyday challenges – changing careers, keeping the romance alive within a marriage, adopting a healthier lifestyle, kidnapping a dog, destroying a swimming pool and sabotaging a wedding.
Having filmed his family’s disastrous attempt to carve out a holiday in the midst of the pandemic in the 2020 pilot episode, the series sees youngest son Sam continue to document the Jessop family across the year.
Moving back and forward in time, each episode offers an intimate, observed and absurd exposé of a modern British family doing its best to support each other, if accidentally annoying everyone else in the process.
Although nothing quite goes to plan for the Jessops, their indomitable spirit sees them find moments of unexpected delight among the disappointment and laughing in the face of disaster, promising a surfeit of hilarious moments for viewers to enjoy.
In the first episode, when Rachel receives a family pass to Jungle World adventure park as a birthday present from Paul, to be redeemed anytime in the next six months, the family start excitedly planning their big day out.
However, as work and home pressures heighten over the course of the year, the Jessops only remember to use Rachel’s voucher on the final day that it’s valid. Racing against the clock to get to the park before it closes, with an uncooperative dog that Sue is looking after for a neighbour in tow.
Will the Jessops snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and give Rachel the birthday day out she so badly needs?
Here We Go starts Friday 29th April at 8.30pm on BBC One
