NEW JACK DEE SITCOM 'BAD MOVE' TO AIR ON ITV1 THIS AUTUMN

6 X 30 MINUTE EPISODES

First episode: Wednesday 20th September at 8pm on ITV1

Bad Move is a new single camera scripted comedy for ITV by Open Mike Productions written by Jack Dee and Pete Sinclair.

Starring Jack Dee as Steve and Kerry Godliman as his wife Nicky, they play a married couple who are both on their second marriages and have decided that moving to the countryside from the city is the answer to all their dreams.

They’ve watched all the TV relocation shows and read the glossy lifestyle magazines and fell in love with the idea of ‘getting away from the rat race’.

Unfortunately living a simple existence in beautiful surroundings is not all it’s cracked up to be and Steve and Nicky soon find living in the countryside might not be for them after all. Especially when they discover that the house they’ve bought is situated in what locals refer to as ‘In’t Dip’ – a place where internet signals cannot reach, but floodwater most definitely can.

Filmed in the picturesque North Yorkshire Moors, Bad Move is a family comedy set in the most stunning countryside location, where their nearest neighbours Matt (Miles Jupp) and Meena (Manjinder Virk) annoyingly make it all look so easy. Other villagers include Grizzo (Seann Walsh) - a rock star that needs village life to keep him grounded , Ken  (Philip Jackson) - Steve’s no-nonsense disapproving father in-law, and Shannon (Sue Vincent)  - the local shopkeeper.

Bad Move was commissioned by Comedy Commissioning Editor Saskia Schuster and Head of Comedy Entertainment Peter Davey. It’s written by Jack Dee and Pete Sinclair and will be produced by Open Mike Productions with Andrew Beint executive producing.
