Come Home (BBC-1)

Edith (BBC-1 2017, Alison Steadman, John Cleese)

What does it take for a mother to walk out on her family, leaving her children behind? What impact does it have, and how do others judge her? From BAFTA and International Emmy winning screenwriter Danny Brocklehust, Come Home is a powerful, absorbing and deeply emotional family drama, told with warmth and humour. Tense, compelling and truthful, the drama explores the messy realities of parenthood, marriage, and what happens when a mother switches the reset button on their life.

Filmed and set in Northern Ireland, the series will focus up close on a family reeling, from mother Marie who has made the hardest decision of her life, to her bereft husband Greg, and their three kids: 16 year old Liam, 14 year old Laura and 4 year old Molly.

At the heart of the series is an emotional mystery: why did Marie flee?

Writer, Danny Brocklehurst, says: “Come Home is a bold family drama tackling big themes of responsibility, regret and identity, unafraid of going to dark and painful places. But there is also levity, laughter and an emotional truthfulness about the difficulties of parenting. This is a drama about ‘home’, ‘who we are’ and how lives cannot just be walked away from. I’m delighted to be making this passion project drama with Red Productions for BBC One”

Filming will start in Northern Ireland later this year.
