Publisher Description

This new comedy show, written by Jeremy Front (writer of the Charles Paris mysteries for Radio 4) and starring Jeremy Front and Rebecca Front as Jack & Millie Lemman - an older couple who are fully engaged with contemporary life whilst being at war with the absurdities of the modern world.... 

The show also features Millie’s frenemy Shirley, played by Tracy-Ann Oberman; Jack’s all-too-easygoing friend Harry (Nigel Lindsay); their high-pressure son Melvin (Harry Peacock); and their high-maintenance (and Catholic) (and French) daughter-in-law Delphine (Jenny Bede - most recently heard in an episode of John Finnemore’s Double Acts alongside Mathew Baynton).

Jeremy Front, Rebecca Front, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Nigel Lindsay, Sue Kelvin, Adam G Goodwin and Llewella Gideon star in the first episode - 'Death and the Maven'. When Film Club Leo dies suddenly, Jack & Millie have to make a choice between good behaviour and cheesecake.... 

In episode 2, 'Special Lunch' , starring Jeremy Front, Rebecca Front, Harry Peacock, Jenny Bede and Tayla Kovacevic-Ebong, Jack & Millie have a son. And Melvin has an app. And Melvin’s wife, Delphine, has a dog. And Daniel Craig has both his eyebrows. A Special Lunch turns into a Totteridge tale of decking, Bond, beef tomahawks and a married lifetime’s worth of verbal sparring.... 

Show 3, and Jeremy Front, Rebecca Front, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Nigel Lindsay, Rebecca Gethings, Naz Osmanoglu and Luke Sumner star in 'Deliver Us from Ebay'. Jack & Millie discover the 11th Commandment - thou shalt not try to please a son’s scary ex-girlfriend. And what’s really in the mysterious neighbour’s packages...?

Episode 4 stars Jeremy Front, Rebecca Front, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Nigel Lindsay, Harry Peacock, Jenny Bede and Lauren O' Rourke in 'The Kids Are Alright'. All grandkids make mistakes. But only Jack & Millie’s do it quite so loudly and on video.... 

And in the bonus pilot edition, 'Kafka Died at 39', a phone, a strudel and Franz Kafka combine to make Jack & Millie’s day rather complicated in this new comedy about an older couple getting to grips with a French daughter-in-law, gassy beer, Eye-Closing Leon and a married lifetime’s worth of verbal sparring.... 

The show comes from Pozzitive, proud producers of Cabin Pressure, Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones!, Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, The Brig Society, The Castle, Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive, Shush! and Kevin Eldon Will See You Now....
