'Life is a long journey. If we're lucky, we'll make some friends along the way. If we're unlucky, they'll stay in touch.'
Hat Trick Productions' BBC One comedy series Boomers has a stellar cast of much-loved British actors - Russ Abbot, Stephanie Beacham, Philip Jackson, James Smith, Alison Steadman and Paula Wilcox - Boomers follows the ups and downs of three couples living in Thurnemouth, 'Norfolk's only West facing resort'. Alan (Philip Jackson, Raised By Wolves, Pete Versus Life, Poirot) still wants to slow down, whilst Joyce (Alison Steadman, The Syndicate, Gavin and Stacey, Love And Marriage) wants to speed up. John (Russ Abbot, September Song) and Maureen (Stephanie Beacham, Bad Girls, Dynasty) are enjoying life, adventurous in every aspect including the bedroom. For them 60 is the new 40. And finally there's Trevor (James Smith, Grandma's House, In The Loop, The Thick Of It) and Carol (Paula Wilcox, Mount Pleasant, The Smoking Room, Emmerdale) who are coming to the end of a period of sexual lent.
Boomers (6 x 30') is written by Richard Pinto (Fresh Meat, Citizen Khan, The Armstrong & Miller Show, The Kumars at No 42) and produced by Paul Schlesinger (W1A, the BAFTA winning Twenty Twelve, Citizen Khan). The series is directed by Adam Miller (Some Girls, Mongrels, Katy Brand's Big Ass Show).
