The new six-part series promises to be a modern Bonnie and Clyde story and launches New Year's Day on Sky Max.
Katherine Ryan plays Allison and Romesh Ranganathan plays Deacon, a couple 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…
Romantic Getaway begins directly after Deacon and Alison have defrauded their dodgy boss, Alfie, played by 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.
Produced by Ranga Bee and Sky Studios, the series has been written and created by Romesh Ranganathan and Benjamin Green with additional writers Sarah Morgan and Elaine Gracie. Directed by Shaun Wilson and produced by Caroline Norris, Romantic Getaway is executive produced by Benjamin Green, Romesh Ranganathan and Michelle Farr-Scott for Ranga Bee and Anil Gupta and Jon Mountague for Sky Studios.
