British comedy channel G.O.L.D. has announced its first venture into original scrupted comedy.
"Us And Them" centers on the unusual romance of Lauren and Ed, deeply in love despite their 20 year age difference. Everyone else in their lives, on the other hand, looks on the relationship from a different perspective. Lydia, ex-wife of Ed, lives in the house opposite the couple while his friends view Lauren as a trophy girlfriend, and Lauren's family are constantly meddling with the couple.
Commissioner Sarah Fraser said of the series, "We are delighted to be working with some of the best on and off screen British comedy talent out there and are really looking forward to seeing these twisted family tales come to life."
The series is created and written by Steve Turner, whose past credits include CBBC series "Jinx" and "Tracy Beaker Returns," as well as the ITV dramedy "Great Night Out."
Gold's Steve North said, "'Us And Them' is funny, engaging and a perfect fit for G.O.L.D.'s audience. We are in talks with a number of high profile actors to play the lead roles and look forward to welcoming a stellar cast to the channel. UKTV's investment in G.O.L.D. is really starting to pay off and we are confident that this new series will appeal to our viewers."
