2. The Reluctant Landlord

Tuesday 30th October at 10pm on Sky One

If there's one man that's dominated television in 2018, it's Romesh Ranganathan. This time he's starring in The Reluctant Landlord, a new comedy for Sky One which he has written and is based on his own experiences.

Romesh quickly learns pulling pints isn't for him when his mum makes him take over his late dad's pub. What he wants is to be a hip-hop DJ and no amount of emotional blackmail from his wife Natasha, played by Sian Gibson, and his two kids will see him give this new venture his all.

Romesh's best mate Lemon, played by Nick Helm, props up the bar, but even his mischief can't make up for the eccentric gang of regulars who are constantly telling him his dad ran a better boozer.

And his wife's harebrained schemes to improve the place don't help either. In the first episode, Romesh clashes with pub bully Dirty Harry, played by Phil Davis, and Julie dares to introduce cocktails on to the bar menu.
