Filming began earlier this week on a brand new comedy TV show called Scarborough.

It is being produced for BBC One and has been written and directed by Derren Litten, the award-winning creator of smash hit series Benidorm.

The series is set in Scarborough and follows the lives of a motley band of Scarborough residents who are bonded by family, friendship and their love of karaoke.

A host of talented actors are set to appear in the series including:

  • Comedian and actor Jason Manford
  • Catherine Tyldesley (Coronation Street)
  • Stephanie Cole (Still Open All Hours, Coronation Street)
  • Maggie Ollerenshaw (Last of the Summer Wine, Still Open All Hours)
  • Steve Edge (Phoenix Nights, Benidorm)
  • Claire Sweeney (Brookside)
  • Harriet Webb (Edge Of Heaven, White Gold)
  • Gina Fillingham (National Treasure: Kiri)

Derren Litten said:

“Even though I’ve stuck close to themes I clearly love (the seaside, pubs and karaoke!), Scarborough is unlike anything I’ve written before.

I’m genuinely flattered by the calibre of actors my scripts have attracted and I can’t wait for BBC audiences to get caught up in the laughter, love and intrigue I’ve created all set against the backdrop of this beautiful North Yorkshire fishing town.”

The show description is:

Mike (Jason) and Karen (Catherine) are nearly-40-somethings that are giving their relationship another go, five years after they split.

The pair were always meant to be together, but Mike’s ambition to become a professional entertainer meant that he was never at home.

Now in his late 30’s, Mike has realised what’s actually important to him - he’s given up life on the road to come back to Scarborough and give their relationship another go.

Between the local salon, Geraldine’s, and local pub/karaoke hot spot, The Good Ship, there’s never a dull day in town. But will the course of true love run smoothly for the couple the second time around, or will the trials and tribulations of their lives get in the way?
