Daddy Issues

BBC Three and BBC iPlayer are set to release a new original comedy series titled “Daddy Issues,” created by Fudge Park, the team behind popular shows like The Inbetweeners and White Gold. The sitcom, filmed in Stockport, revolves around the lives of Gemma (played by Aimee Lou Wood) and her father Malcolm (played by David Morrissey).

The cast of Daddy Issues has expanded with the addition of several talented actors including David Fynn, Sharon Rooney, Sarah Hadland, Taj Atwal, Arian Nik, Tom Stourton, Susan Lynch, Susannah Fielding, Lauren O’Rourke, Cyril Nri, Cora Kirk, Perry Fitzgerald, Claire Keelan, Damien Molony, Sherrie Hewson, Humphrey Ker, and David Reed.

The protagonist, Gemma, finds herself unexpectedly pregnant after a casual encounter, leading her to lean on her well-meaning but inexperienced father, Malcolm, for support. Recently divorced and struggling with household tasks due to his ex-wife’s impulsive spending, Malcolm had been living with a friend until Gemma’s flatmate leaves abruptly. Facing financial strain and the prospect of solitude, Gemma makes the difficult choice to ask her father to move in with her, despite the possible complications of their new living arrangement.

From disastrous dates and failed relationships to toxic friendships and complicated family dynamics—including an eccentric antenatal teacher—Daddy Issues delves into the complexities of the relationship between father and daughter while shedding light on the realities of parenthood at any stage of life.

The comedy series comprises six episodes lasting thirty minutes each and is produced by Fudge Park for BBC Three and BBC iPlayer. The show is written by Danielle Ward and directed by Catherine Morshead and Damon Beesley. Lynn Roberts serves as the producer, with Phil Gilbert, Aimee Lou Wood, David Morrissey, Danielle Ward, and Damon Beesley acting as executive producers.

Daddy Issues was commissioned by Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy Commissioning at the BBC, in collaboration with Fiona Campbell, Controller of Youth Audience for BBC iPlayer and BBC Three. Seb Barwell represents the BBC as the commissioner. Global sales for Daddy Issues are being handled by Fremantle.

Further details regarding the release date of Daddy Issues will be announced in due course.
