The as-yet-untitled six -part series will be Executive Produced by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Miles Ketley.
The award-winning comedian subverts the traditional sitcom format by combining her eccentric characters, surreal moments and factual insight to create a series about family, relationships and biology.
Sara Pascoe doesn’t know why everyone else in the world is pairing up and having babies and sets out on a mission to understand them. She tries to prove that romantic love is mere chemicals and conditioning and doesn’t deserve our respect.
This conflicts a little with preparations for her sister’s wedding, and her best friend’s first pregnancy. The show is being described as "a full-hearted, full-brained approach to narrative comedy with characters that are full of life" (apart from one ghost).
Speaking about the series, Sara said “I'm obsessed with family dynamics, sex, hope and the reasons underlying why humans behave as we do. My new series gives me a chance to explore all of these things in a funny, silly way, buoyed up by the research I've done for my two books."
Whilst Controller of BBC Comedy Shane Allen said “Sara’s eclectic comic mind and unconventional approach to story-telling combine to deliver a truly inventive show.”
Executive Produced by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Miles Ketley for Stolen Picture, Simon Pegg said “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Sara at Stolen Picture. She is without doubt, one of the sharpest minds and the funniest voices working in comedy today.”
The series (title to be announced) is a natural progression from Sara’s BBC Comedy Short film for BBC iPlayer and BBC Two Sara Pascoe vs Monogamy, which she began with the bold statement that she "doesn’t think human beings are meant to be monogamous" and descended into bad sex, Victorians and sperm wars.
