Turning a Jewish tradition into a sitcom was perhaps never an easy task but Friday Night Dinner has managed to do just that in spectacular fashion.
Based around the Jewish tradition, where every Friday night the family would get together for dinner, the series was written and created by Robert Popper whose previous credits include Peep Show, The Inbetweeners, Him & Her and my personal favourite The IT Crowd.
With a list of credits that good there was never any doubting his credential I guess and with the might of producer Kenton Allen and big Talk Productions behind him the show was bound to become the hit has now become.
Friday Night Dinner returns on a Sunday night, confused? Me too, considering it did so well the first time around in the obvious Friday night slot. Anyway
