Starring Julia Davis, Rufus Jones (W1A), Vicki Pepperdine (Together) Steve Pemberton (Inside No.9), Jonathan Cake (Doll & Em), Liz Berrington (Stella) all under the curiously watchful eye of campsite owner – David Bamber (Rome).
Julia Davis commented: “I am very, very excited to making another series for Sky Atlantic thanks to the great creative freedom and support of Zai Bennett and Lucy Lumsden.
Director of Sky Atlantic Zai Bennett commented: “Known for grown-up storytelling and working with the best in the industry, Sky Atlantic is the perfect home for Julia Davis’s sublime work. Alongside drama Sky Atlantic is investing in top flight, cinematic quality comedy and Julia's new series is a great way to start the next year"
